He holds a degree in journalism, has worked as a correspondent for one of the largest Russian newspapers, and has developed various business projects in advertising and sales. Photography is a big part of his life, combining his passions for travelling and aviation.
This aerial shot, entitled “Pattern of the ebb”, was taken in the Kimberley region in Western Australia, near the city of Broome. “This area is known for its high tides. The water level can change over several hours by 10 meters, so during low tides you can see these bizarre figures and formations.” - @stasbart

5 days ago “Back in 2002, I had some serious health issues that led me to strive for a more wholesome lifestyle. As part of that, I travelled to The Great Wall to climb with a couple of my friends who were into landscape photography, and I got hooked. That’s when I realized that you don’t need to be a professional to enjoy photography, you can use it simply as a form of self-expression. Soon after that trip I bought my first digital camera and started taking pictures. I haven’t stopped since. That’s why this image and the location are so special to me, and I’m happy I got to go back and capture it again, this time with the new XT.” - Hong Zuo

6 days ago This image is from @yuliagorbachenko’s "The Skin I Live In" series for @voguemexico’s 20th Anniversary edition. The shoot was inspired by the fiercely feminine model @charleefraser and her Instagram stories. She just recently won the Model of the Year award in Australia, her home country. “I’ve always wanted to shoot something very intimate and sensual but elegant and timeless at the same time. With this project, Charlee was able to fulfil one of her dream "mood" shoots and so did I. Sometimes in life you just need to let it all go and feel free.” - @yuliagorbachenko
Creative direction by @_JP_nyc, fashion editor @sandyarmeni. In this image, model @charleefraser is wearing @fendi.
Shot on Phase One XF IQ3 100MP Trichromatic with a Schneider Kreuznach LS 80mm f/2.8
1 week ago "Ethiopia's 'church in the sky' is arguably the most inaccessible place of worship on #earth, perched on top of a vertical spire of rock and 200m drops on all sides. The monolithic church, located in northern #Ethiopia in the Tigray region, is 2,600m high and must be climbed on a vertical rock with bare feet to reach it, making you wonder how families grit it out to visit the church for Sunday services. This is the most extraordinary place I've ever been and this priest is one of the most incredible subjects I've been lucky enough to shoot.” - @mauro_de_bettio

2 weeks ago For this year’s Fall/Winter edition of @metalmagazine, photographer Coco Neuville translated the issue’s theme–Rituals–into an editorial exploring our relationship to online social networks. The photo series addresses this relationship from a post-humanist perpective, by placing young models in what appears to be an anthropological exhibition, and making us reflect on how the rituals we build in relation to online networks can lead to intricate, sometimes nonsensical distortions of self, identity, one’s actions and place in the world.

3 weeks ago Gerard O'Connor and Marc Wasiak's photographic art series 'Angels & Wolves' depicts what they like to call a 'factual fiction' about Labassa, one of Australia's most outstanding 19th century mansions. Based on a true story about the lady of the house who, during the 1940s, hosted extravagant art parties and wore dresses made of a thousand living flowers, the two artists created a Victorian Gothic fairytale that’s highly detailed and visually striking. We’re not sure if the lady’s Wolfine lover is more fact than fiction, but it’s definitely great inspiration for this #halloween season.

3 weeks ago This is a shot from @paloma_rincon_ 's personal project "Freezing Flowers", an exploration in the more traditional still life sub-genre of floral photography. In this composition, Paloma wanted to feature the classic subject using a contemporary approach, in her signature-style, synesthetic blend of textures and shapes.
Fun fact: The ‘ice’ in the shot is in fact commercial resin, moulded using Tupperware containers set to freeze over night.
3 weeks ago This image is from a portrait series photographer @kenhermann did with the shamans he met in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia. Pictured here is 38yo Baoquan in the customary colorful robes that shamans wear when they perform healing rituals. Shamanic healing rituals are very intense and involve evocative dancing, chanting, rice wine spitting and culminate in a trance-like state of mind where the shaman ends up collapsing, totally drained from energy.

3 weeks ago Our take on #worldpastaday
Photo by @ev.robinson from a personal project with creative director Michelle Mattar and food stylist Maggie Rugiero: “After shooting 12 hours a day all week for a client, there’s nothing we’d rather do than get together and play with visual ideas in our free time too. We all agreed that it would be a blast to have a play day, to explore all the ideas that no client would ever commission us to create, and that’s how our pasta mop was born. We wanted to create classic domestic moments in unexpected ways, subverting modern expectations of what it is to be a home maker - because that word has become so loaded. We loved the idea of mopping up all the food on your plate - well what if one’s pasta could really become a mop? Maggie made it happen. I crawled into the bathtub, Phase One in hand, and we got the shot.” #phaseonephoto#foodphotography
1 month ago Photographer @christianfletcher_gallery headed inland with a Phase One IQ4 to the small timber town of Nannup, in his native Western Australia, to an area of rolling hills, farmland and tree plantations. Several months earlier a forest fire had destroyed large areas of the plantation. The morning this image was shot, it was bitterly cold and the valleys were covered in a blanket of fog. The atmospherics, combined with the burnt orange color of the trees made for a striking image.
