I`m nudity and landscapes photographer from Russia. I reside in the city of Chelyabinsk, southern Ural. I studied radio engineering at the South-Ural State University. From 1985 to 1987 I served in the Soviet army, near Vladivostok on the Pacific coast by the Chinese border. 

Photography has been my focus since 1999.I didn’t held camera in my hands before and I’m self- taught.  My work is based on traditional film technology, with a medium format camera Hasselblad 503 CW and four Carl Zeiss lenses, Planar 80/2,8, Sonnar 150/4, Sonnar 250/5,6 and Distagon 50/4. To get excellent quality I use a film scanner Nikon 8000ED, which allows me to make 1×1 meter print for exhibitions easily. I eschew digital processing, using it only to retouch dust and scratches.

My works have awards from many competitions, participated in exhibitions and publications around the world. I really love industrial nudes, but it is not enough to use one light source for shooting in steel-casting department or on electric power station, the lighting is very poor in such places. For shooting some industrial and interior nudes I used many flash types: soft-box as the main light, standard 9-inch reflector – as an edge light, translucent umbrella as fill light, and illumination of back drop and some additional lights as local illumination. Translucent umbrella is very good for background light, because some light passes through it and some light reflects back. The umbrella gives light to both sides! It can be used as an edge light and illumination of back drop at the same time.

“Sometimes if I want to make close-up shot of some body details I use an additional lens with Planar or Distagon.”

At the time of digital technologies I continue to use b&w film for shooting of erotic art and landscapes. These are all the films I’ve ever used: AGFA APX 25, AGFA APX 100, AGFA APX 400, Ilford PanF 50, Ilford FP4 125, Ilford HP5 400, Ilford DELTA 100, Ilford DELTA 400, Fomapan 100, Fomapan 400, Fortepan 100, Fujifilm Acros 100б Fujifilm Neopan 400, Fujichrome Velvia and Fujichrome Provia. Especially I like AGFA APX 100, AGFA APX 400 and AGFA APX 25 (it is a pity that the last one is no longer produced) very much. They give naked skin an excellent tone. Fomapan 100 is very cheap, but has a very good emulsion giving the tone close to AGFA, but with a little bit bigger grain. Fomapan 400 together with red filter make picture very dramatic: almost black sky and white naked skin. Fuji Neopan 400 is also very good outdoors. Its colors are so vivid! It is almost impossible to see grain on Fuji Acros 100! I mostly use Ilford FP4 125 for shooting nudes now, because it gives the perfect tone and consistent result. [Official Website]

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.

I like to think of my Great Uncle Moszek hovering  somewhere between floors 8 and 12 of Nalewki Street  9 in the Warsaw ghetto. It is a safe place, this imagined placement of his body. Down below the streets of the ghetto are not safe. A German soldier has been killed and revenge is about to be sought. Boots are  heard on the ground, moving ever closer to number 9.
