Oleg Dou – Cubs

20 Jul

Curently exposed at the Senda gallery in Barcelona, Oleg Dou, an artist from Moscow, shows us his latest création: Cubs.

When he was 13 he received a computer with photoshop, so he tryed to make some fun with his friend pics. It became a passion, then in 2005 he started photography and the year after he has been spotted by Liza Fetissova. His main inspiration comes from the funeral portraits of children, curious tradition dating from the nineteenth century.

For the record, this series evokes the unease of Oleg as a child. In celebration he saw himself dressed in those ridiculous animal costumes made ​​by his mother.

He said: “I ​​could not pretend to be happy in front of the camera, I hated being photographed.”

The artist decided to recreate these portraits through the discomfort and embarrassment that he felt in his childhood. Oleg tells us that all the costumes have been designed by his mother.

Sonia & Mark Whitesnow – Psychospa

29 Jun

Ironic world of Psychospa, the world which reflects a modern man living in a metropolis, unsociable and full of fears and anxieties but “attracted” to nature. A person, who does his best to achieve harmony of his body and soul and in so doing, wishes to stay young and healthy. Driven by a “set of procedures” such as therapeutic mud baths, volcanic minerals, plants, chocolate and honey his inner energy awakes in him. The man turns into a strong and resolute creature with a significant moment of clearing the body of “chemical and toxic waste”.

Anka Zhuravleva – Distorted Gravity

21 May

(…) many photographers are self-described “late bloomers” who turned their hobby into a full-time profession at a much later age. Such was the case for artist Anka Zhuravleva who realized that photography was her truly calling only after jumping around from career to career. She worked as a tattoo artist, a singer in a rock-band, a model and a painter!

Finally in 2006, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia-based Zhuravleva decided to focus all of her efforts on photography. Here, she put her own, unique spin on the art of levitation through her series Distorted Gravity. In it, her young subjects are seen going about their everyday lives…all in a zero gravity environment.
