SEBASTIAN SALGADO. REPORTING WITH THE CONDITION TO PEACE

Talk about the work of Sebastian Salgado should begin with a question about the functions of photography in society. After all, the world of photography does not end with aesthetics, advertising and conceptual art of the already familiar to us Chema Madoza.
There are other images whose task is to arouse the viewer sympathy for the pain of another, to reflect the wrong side of modern society. Such pictures are created by the famous Brazilian photographer Sebastian Salgado, in whose lens military conflicts, poverty and suffering of the Third World population found their true reflection. With the help of his work, the author invites the viewer to a controversy about the shortcomings of modern society, calling for a search for a solution to existing problems.

9 FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPHS WHERE YOU NEED TO LEARN

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN RUSSIAN. OLGA FILONOVA

That is why in the new interview cycle we will talk with those who are closer to us – with Russian wedding photographers, and find out how they achieved success.
I open this cycle by publishing interviews with a wonderful, friendly and open-to-talk person – professional photographer Olga Filonova.
It all started with an accident – instead of a broken soap box, I was loaned to a friend’s wedding, I liked a couple of pictures from me more than from a hired pro – and then I thought about purchasing such a camera for myself. Honestly, I took flowers and cats for about six months, until a friend (wedding photographer) suggested I take off the wedding. Continue reading
