In 2014, Nazar bought a film soap box at the station. So a gypsy.Petya character appeared, creating in the style of pseudo-fashion-erotic-street-nu-soc-cult-art-prealism.
- I received my first camera, Elikon, as a gift from a friend in 2011. At first, he shot a street photo, exclusively for fun. Later, I bought a film “Olympus” from my hands at the train station - “naked” filming began in a genre that I called pseudo-fashion-ero-street-nu-soc-cult-art-prealism. The gypsy.Petya character was created to embody creative ideas while avoiding a bias towards the author’s personality.
To fill my hand, I bought blocks of an expired Svema and snapped seven to eight coils over the weekend. The film taught to think through each frame in advance and helped to show their own style.
I shoot for myself, enjoy the process and the result, but I receive consistently two or three commercial offers per month from local and foreign brands. In most cases, this is an advertising shooting of models, but there are also creative ideas.
At first, friends agreed to all sorts of silly photo shoots, and these shots served as a tremendous impetus for inspiration. The first photos were spontaneous and bright.
For each model I have an individual approach. Before shooting, I definitely meet to speak out all the nuances. In order to feel more relaxed, we drank and smoked together at the first photo shoots.
Recently, together with the artist Tatiana Borichk we created a conceptual shooting. I was immediately interested in the idea, because it was about the combination of nature and the human body - the work on the project turned into a study of spaces and the integration of the human body into these spaces. Here the artist seeks to build a relationship with the environment, to come as close as possible, sometimes even to dissolve in the environment. And the photographer is trying to capture this process with the help of the camera and his own vision. As a result - the synthesis of different types of art.
For me there are no restrictions on what or who to photograph - the very idea of shooting is important. If it is sickened by my moral or aesthetic vision, I either seek a compromise, or refuse.
I never had a goal to photograph only people.Therefore, in the frame there are landscapes, still lifes, animals, or something else that, in my opinion, looks interesting.
Among the people who inspire me are illustrator Ricardo Cavolo, director Wes Anderson, designers Nigo (Tomoaki Nagao) and Virgil Abloch. Idols in photos - Synchrodogs, GORSAD, Lukash Verzhbovski, Ren Hang, Helmut Newton, Yoshikatsu Aizawa, Guy Burden.
