Ancient Suzdal and Vladimir

Ancient Suzdal (founded 1024) and Vladimir (founded 1108) are considered true gems of the ancient Russian architecture. Winter presents a unique opportunity to witness these masterpieces of architecture and medieval art in a very authentic way, similarly to how they appeared to the visitors 500 years ago. What strikes the visitor is the absolute pureness…

ECOSYSTEMS @OxUniMaths

Our beautiful exhibition at the Oxford’s University Mathematical Institute has just been launched! Set in a beautiful contemporary space of the Mathematical Institute, the exhibition features 32 works from the ECOSYSTEMS album http://stanislav.photography/ecosystems in stunning 81x53cm format.

Rephotography @TheOtherArtFair

Rephotography is an interesting concept. Images photographed, presented in physical form and then rephotographed take on a life of their own. Thus, my ‘Magical Realism’ piece that was recently shown at INDEX in Dubai will be presented at the Other Art Fair in Bristol, 26-29 July 2018: http://bristol.theotherartfair.com/ alongside many other works. Additional layers, including…

Photographic gaze @MuseumModernArt ‏

My photographic gaze is searching for three most important elements: the special light, the distinct atmosphere and a significant detail. I am particularly attracted to various manifestations of colour in the real world, and have devoted considerable attention to the colour theories from Chevreul to John Gage. I am inspired by a wealth of tradition…

Constructed Photography @MuseumModernArt

Thus the photograph presented here depicts the iconic landscape of Colombian highlands with the strong diagonals of the…

Andre Derain @CentrePompidou

The grand exhibition of Andre Derain at Centre Pompidou in Paris is a landmark show the scale of which has not been seen since the 1994-1995 exhibition at the Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Derain had a profound influence on me as a painter and is a constant source of inspiration for…

Photography as an ‘Environmental Practice’ @MuseumModernArt

Photographs in essence depict the effects of reflected light falling from the fragments of reality. Villem Flusser, considering the images a form of ‘mediations between the world and the human beings’, defends the view that photography is the most important human invention since the introduction of linear writing. Photographs are not real, in the sense…

Cultural Ecosystem Services

I am pleased to enclose a presentation on my new photographic project focusing on the Cultural Ecosystem Services. Ecosystems indirectly create significant cultural value that cannot be expressed in monetary terms. This value is multi-dimensional and is related to knowledge systems, inspiration, spirituality and religion, through the creation of the sense of place and aesthetic…
