I want the colors of my images, violent, magnetic, to make the viewer feel the power of the moment, as well as its abstract side.
Here we are from the pro-russian side, that is very little shown in the media.
We are in really sovietic mood, like if it wasn't Ukrain.
With contrast and composition, I transform everyday scenes into timeless paintings, which correspond to the new generation of which I am a part.
I want us not to be able to return the eyes of these the images, even the most horrific tragedies, such as war, orphanage, and poverty.
MEN FALL ON THE FRONT, BUT PEOPLE ARE HUNGRY FOR ENTERTAINMENT, ART, LIVING TOGETHER EMOTIONS OTHER THAN FEAR.
That's why I took the risk of mixing the pure and luminous, explosive colors used in contemporary photography with photojournalistic images.
