April 9 2007

On the cultural map of Moscow has opened a new place - DK gallery, which has managed to show the public exhibition of two photographers - Peter Aksenov ("The Girl and the Wolf") and Vladimir Mishukova ("Gold Rush"). It would seem that such a polar creative authors could not live together, but they were able to get along quite well at the exhibition, held during the festival "Fashion and Style in Photography".

Pyotr Aksenov has decided to provide the public with their restrospektivu several projects. However, despite this, all his work carried a certain tragedy, which is manifested not only in the subjects taken from fairy tales. Weston were performed in dark colors, but it did not look anything discouraged. On the contrary, the prevailing shades of purple and dark blue can be found mystery and mysticism.

"All the themes that haunt me - it kind of tragedy of man, the line between good and evil beauty. I love tragedy of a life, and I think that the tales is that moment that we somehow forget when we grow up. We have a tragedy in life, but as something more sentimental and attached to those things which we solve. A story is always mystical, sad, so I have all the work inspired by the stories of Hans Christian Andersen, Brothers Grimm. Sometimes, people, when reading fairy tales, never thinking that they are wildly violent and wildly truthful. Everyone thinks it's beautiful, but it is actually very tough. And if we take a fairy tale "Bluebeard", it is practically the history of Hannibal - not quite fabulous and not in the style of "Bun". That is why I like children, wolves, a girl who expects his death and pray for mercy, "- shared his thoughts in an exclusive interview Petr Aksenov.

Surprisingly, the author's photographs was very difficult to distinguish from the real of paintings. This phenomenon explains the unusual technology Aksenova, which after processing on the computer lurid your picture with acrylic paint.

Draft Vladimir Mishukova "Gold Rush" differed sharply from the "Girls and the Wolf. Very concept of the project was formulated by one of the women's magazines, which conducted a survey among its readers. It identified the best among the nominations show business figures, photographs, and they were then executed Mishukovym.

Its modern, pragmatic texture work was devoid of the shadows of mystery, but it reflects the capital's beau monde in the fact that neither is gold. Okasana Robsky in the image of a female boxer on the gold ring, Anastasia Zavarotnyuk in gold bath, and many others.

"Despite the fact that these pictures were taken for the magazine, now they are just like pictures with minimal retouching. For example, I like it when visible wrinkles, pryschechki-it's also part of man, and if it is not, then get a marble figure. Every time I take off the way I like it. By and large they are stars and there are stars. And that task is complicated by a certain interest. Glamour is now a common name, and now it is presented more as a negative aspect for me, since the concept of inner beauty and exaggerate it a purely external means will not ", - said Vladimir Mishukov.

Today's photographers show two completely different facets of what constitutes a picture. Pyotr Aksenov, she expressed a languid, weird, psychedelic atmosphere, but at the same time touching. We see "Gold Rush" Mishukova, which was so seriously made for a glossy magazine. Gold, which is the life of these heroes - an idea of what our lives should shine in all possible and impossible ways. And here Mishukovu able to see both the character and individuality of these characters and to present the entire project with a good sense of humor "- commented the director of the Moscow House of Photography Olga Sviblova.
