Sergei Chilikov - Various

Doctor in philosophy, aged 59 yrs and russian, this photograph is once again the demonstration of the extraordinary vitality of the photography in eastern countries. The particular talent (genius) of this photograph is to make static and dynamic coexist in the same picture. Some models move (and are blurred) whereas others are still. A simple idea but the effect is stunning, giving the watcher the impression he's part of the scene. The colours have this old pictures effect that gives them a vintage quality. Last but not least (for me), there's a sensuality in these pictures that honestly I only find these days in russian or ukrainian photography. I gathered my faves on this post but you can see more here.
