The Human Body as a Clay
When the Night Comes
Main Will Remain for
World of the Silence
What is the human body for you?
body for me is "clay" with which I try to mould new images. Light
lines on the body - especially on muscles - are very interesting
You evidently prefer black-and-white
photographs. Why is that? What means shadow to you? And what means
color to you? I very much love the black and white
photo, in the style of the old classical photo. I use color very
rarely. And only when it is pertinent in the given plot. Light
plays a big role in the naked art. Shadows give
эротичности and mysticism.
What does the modern techniques mean
to you? Images and plots are born from my imagination.
It CAN be at any moment, and even from my dreams. I, don't see
anything bad in progress and in digital camera, that has taken a
strong place in today's photo.
What camera do you use? What lens?
I use two cameras. For
studio shooting, a Rolleiflex 6008 AF with lens
Rollei 6000 Series lens. For
shooting in the street, I use the less heavy Nikon D70, which is very
easy to use.
What was your biggest success until
now? A photo album printed in Germany, a show on such
prestigious site as PixiPort Fine Art Photography. My pictures
were printed in prestigious magazines, like Black & White
and in many Russian and Ukrainian magazines. And the most
important is that there are many people who love my creativity and
trust in me.
What future plans do you have?
The release of my second photo album by autumn. And
certainly, to try to create very good pictures.
