Do you like silence? As for me, I like it very much! As a resident of a large metropolis I regularly feel the need for silence, for natural sounds created by nature. The sound of water, wind, birds calling, leaves rustling. A few days on the White sea allowed me to enjoy it. And inspiring views of the surrounding nature sharpened and strengthened the perception. I suggest you to join me and, at least virtually, to find yourselves on The white sea coast.
I have returned from my trip to the White sea. And of course I have got a lot of photos from my travel. It was a trip by car, I have driven about 3300 km. I hope you understand that my photos aren’t typical travel photos. I’m not interested in a smooth surface of reality, I am interested in inner content with its imperfections and drama.
I go on working on the series “Rehearsal of the apocalypse”. In the process of the work some thoughts come to my head. I think humanity is not ready to apocalypse. We depend so much on benefits of civilization and our rhythm of life. If we lose them it will cause crisis in our minds and create psychological breakdown. And it will be more destructive for the society.
The new project has started to take shape. It is interesting how the collapse of the world scale transforms reality, how people change under the influence of circumstances, how quickly nostalgia and itching for the lost come on. And there was a feeling that a certain line was passed, and what was before the line, suddenly became the past, which can not be returned. A whole tangle of new sensations, doubts and torments.
I have been courting this topic from different angles for a very long time, not daring to take it up. First of all, this is due to the development of visual images, there is always a danger in the disclosure of such topics to fall into the vulgarity or canvas of traditionally hackneyed erotic photography. I must immediately indicate one point: all the themes that I implement in photography are deeply personal and related to my inner experiences. The title of this topic does not reflect the essence of what is happening within the series, it is rather marketing, because Freud and his method of psychoanalysis are quite popular and cause interest. To hype on old man Sigmund J Human desire, a deep desire for the sake of stability of the individual and society as a whole, under the pressure of morality and ethics is kept in check. In my work my main goal is to examine this phenomenon, to get very close to it. Work on the project is in full swing, and I don’t know where it will lead me in the end.
