Kirill Surov

  • I am primarily interested in the metaphysics of space and light in a fraction of time and try to approach documentary and street photography from a completely artistic angle. I succeed when I find subtlety in geometry and visual beauty of a moment. My photographs are characterized by bold formsand shapes often contrasting with or hiding the actual subject of the picture. Nevertheless, they almost always express more than just a graphical abstraction and invite viewer to explore them and to find these hidden items. I also experiment with wide-angle object distortions in still life compositions either constructed or found. I work exclusively with 35 mmblack and white film and hand-print archival quality fiber basedphotographs.
