Mikhail Galustov Interesting young Russian photographer. At GUP we are hugely impressed by the Caucasus Crisis series. Boris Michailov By photographing his subjects partially naked, Michailov directs extra attention to the precarious situation into which they slipped since the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s.
Ingar Krauss The young subjects in Krauss’ intense portraits seem to have the wisdom of adults. The melancholy in their eyes betrays the pain that they have endured. It is now black and white. Lucia Ganieva Static portraits of Russians at home. We love how Ganieva uses direct sunlight to highlight her subjects in the Iron Mules series.
Alexandra Demenkova Russian by birth, Demenkova graduated in 2008 from the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam. Energetic black and white portraits of Russian country life. Jeroen Toirkens This photographer has spent years travelling to places such as Russia to record the lives of nomads. The photos will eventually result in a book.
Ananta Dasa Born in Moscow, brought up in different parts of the world, washed ashore in India, where she shoots stunning black and white portraits Dimitry Markov The series 100 Days Instead of Childhood is about four boys from a boarding school for disabled children who are trying to live independently. A great story about lingering youth.
