Max (15) – the youngest professional antiquarian of the world: THE NEW BEGINNING

Update posted by Tom Tulik Photonicum and Allegorium Antiquarians On Nov 07, 2021

I have no words - we have received so much sympathy and support during the last days after Max was rushed to hospital and had an emergency surgery. I am glad to say that he's recovering well, sending all of you his love and hugs, and he promises to be back at work as soon as doctors give "all clear" to him. THANK YOU so much!

We started this page, when Max was still 13. On August 21, 2021, he will turn 15 - and to be honest, during the last months - due to problems I have had with my eyes and ability to concentrate on laptop screen (or images we choose on antiquarian markets and stores), he has miost certainly chosen and bought 70% or more of our new photos, and done about a half of the technical work from scanning to packaging and shipping.

Earlier, Max was confident with the 9th grade (Junior High) diploma he received this June, but now - parallelly to our work, he plans to do the two last years (10th and 11th grade, or High School( in one year. As his school is not a standard Ukrainian school, and most of the classes are now online, the school offers an opportunity to do this for kids who want to economy time.

To participate in this programme (two grade classes in one year), we have to pay the school 27,000 Ukrainian hryvnas (about EUR 845 or US$ in one instalment by September.01. If you have liked the photos Max has chosen for you, your contributions in a form of a birthdy present - be it big or small - EW moast appreciated, Thank you, and God bless you.

It has been a long time since the last update, as we have been fighting our demons. Max has successfully finished his 9th grade, and together (with help from you) we have survived the year of Covid lockdowns in Ukraine. Now we are ready for a new beginning. Situation update is given in the fundraiser text.

We are glad to say, that there are kind people out there (in the world). Just received USD 500 (EUR 405) from a customer (and a friend) of ours in the US. This has been added to "offline payments" total. Thank you!

Original vintage Soviet photo (topic chosen by you) embedded as collage on hand-made passepartout, illustrated by Max in graffiti style - may be a valuable piece of collectible art in 10 years if Max becomes as famous as Banksy, but suitable for framing and hanging on the wall right now, making your home special and giving a piece of talk with your friends.
