In the world of fashion and art, the ability to transcend time and space is a testament to the power of visual storytelling. Victor Vetkin and Egor Trishin have collaborated to create a portrait editorial that is not just a collection of images but a journey into a world where light, perspective, and time intertwine to tell a story that is both intimate and universal.
Playing with the Model’s Facial Features
The visual narrative of “Learning to Look at an Empty Sky” is rooted in a meticulous exploration of the model’s facial features. Vetkin’s approach to capturing the dance between light and perspective is both innovative and evocative. Each image is a canvas where light gracefully illuminates Trishin’s features, creating a visual symphony that is as haunting as it is beautiful.
Capturing the Interaction of Face and Time
Vetkin’s images are a reflection of sensuality that transcends a specific time and era. Armed with a Canon 5D Mark III, he manipulates the angle of the lens to distort proportions and shift reality, crafting portraits that are expressive yet imbued with a contrasting focus on the model’s skin and body.
Creating Illusion in a Large Studio
Despite the expanse of the studio, Vetkin conjures the illusion of a tighter space, where Trishin’s ancient and beautiful form is both confined and celebrated. The use of different light sources and spaces adds depth and complexity to each image, a dance of shadows and light that paints pictures of silent eloquence.
Between Modern Photographers and Old Film Photography
Inspired by modern photographers and the enigmatic world of silent cinema, Vetkin’s images are a blend of high contrast black and white, sculptural imagery, and a detachment of the look. Post-production becomes a bridge from the specific to the eternal, where film effects and monochromatic tones accentuate the timeless narrative woven into each portrait.
A Collaboration of Discovery and Experimentation
Working with new faces like Egor Trishin from @solo_management is a journey of discovery for Vetkin. It’s in the uncharted waters of inexperience and experimentation that the magic happens. Trishin’s intuitive and natural poses, unmarred by over-professionalism, breathe life and authenticity into Vetkin’s artistic vision.
