Says Ilya Varlamov: "Today let's talk about the hatches. It so happened that hatches become an integral part of urban streets. They are located in a completely incomprehensible to me places. Some on the road, some on the sidewalks. If the hatches on the roads, everything is clear — they perform exclusively utilitarian function, the sidewalks, the story is more complicated. Luke on the pedestrian zone can't be ugly. The hatch is a city of flowers under the feet of pedestrians. These flowers can only be beautiful. Every normal city has its own hatch. The design of manholes can be judged against city hall to the people. In the cities, where the love and respect of the inhabitants, they can't shove a rusty, dirty, cast iron pancake on the sidewalk. Hatches give people warmth and joy, hatches decorate the city, the hatches can be a work of art and landmark, Luke is the symbol of the city.

It's hard for me to walk on our streets, it hurts me to step that closes the wells on our sidewalks. I can't watch disregard pedestrians. The most offensive, most people is not that they are being deceived. Let's see, what should be the hatches. My personal collection of over 2,000 photographs of manhole covers in this post I have compiled the most interesting of them."
