Vadim Dimov - Various

This Russian photographer from Moskow, is of course very influenced by Jan Saudek (but so many are), although he provides a personal universe typically in line with the contempory figurative photography in Eastern countries that I appreciate so much, mixing nudity of male and female models with a large variety of body shapes, an exuberant and joyous atmosphere, transgressive metaphors, crudity of situations, richness and often enigmatic symbolism (pighead, monkey masks), bleak places, all this making a fascinating human menagerie in which we would like to enter, us little nevrotic occidental products of centuries of normative and asexual education. One more artist to add to our photoscape in the more or less long time till we die. A site here.
