Light Forms Grey Forms Dark Forms



Light Forms Grey Forms Dark Forms is a series from Antwerp-based Aleksei Kazantsev (b. 1975) of amorphous self-portraits made in twilight landscapes of urban forests. Kazantsev is triggered by the ritual and myth that comes with the process of this work. The mysterious black and white images focus on his morphed body, sometimes distinctly visible in white, sometimes appearing grey or black in between the woods. Nearly unidentifiable as a human figure in most cases, the images are mystical reflections on nature and man's place within it. The project is still ongoing and evolving.
