Reminiscences to Audrey H.

Beauty has never been something absolute. Its standards and distinctive features have changed over the time and space. Elegance, grace, an impeccable sense of style, and intelligence were inherent in the aesthetics of one of the most striking periods in the history of the 20th century. The “Reminiscences to Audrey H.” series is an attempt to transfer the female image of the 1950s, the mood of those years, into modern reality. In this series, I was inspired by the work of Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, Herb Ritts, whose photographs are characterized by compositional clarity, graphics, impeccable play with light and shadow patterns, as well as the dynamics and lightness of the characters depicted. Turning to the stylistics of the past allows us to consider the phenomenon of beauty in and out of time.
