Hi. My name is Ruslan and I love photography.
For me photography is a way to explore my inner world. Partially my pictures are some kind of self portarit in which I want to show my feelings. Photography helps me to learn more about the world around me. I like people who live on this planet, and like to explore their desires, aspirations, fears, sexuality through pictures. I find inspiration in books, movies, music, paintings and in people around me. Also I am interested in directions like hippy, grunge, glam, new wave, punk and in such styles like noir, fashion, decadent, psychological and surrealistic portrait. That's what inspires me. But that doesn't mean that I'm not open to something new.
Special area in my work involves human vices. Love, sex, money, alcohol, entertainment, drugs are the driving force of the world. They are the most interesting topic research for me. And I find them beautiful. I don't want to say that I photograph only that, I take different pictures. Various people I see and shoot differently. I don't know why this is happening. It's magic.
I love to chat. And photography discovers new people for me. When I communicate with people, I understand them better that helps me to find the best way to show them on my pictures. This does not mean that they are in life. And I start to see these people in my ideas. They fill photos different stories, thoughts and phylosophy. They begin to talk with viewers. Pass them information about the world. For me they speak not only on the visual language, but they speak at a subconscious level too. And I have a conversation with viewers together with my models. Relations with spectators and communication with model are very important in my work.
I know, I'm not perfect at this part yet. But I'm trying to develop and become better.
