Svetlana and Nikolay Ponomarev, both born in 1976, are from the Siberian town of Omsk, where they still live today together with their five children. Svetlana Ponomarev is a mother and a housewife, while Nikolaj Ponomarev works as a university lecturer at the psychological faculty in Omsk. Svetlana and Nikolay Ponomarev describe the problem cosmos of modern adolescence with a great sense of drama and in the right tone: Both authors reflect the often infrequently overwhelmed soul situation of young people (not only in Russia). Nikolaj Ponomarev attended the White Ravens Festival without his wife.
