For what do we most appreciate our work? In the first place, for the interesting meetings with outstanding people and real masters. They can turn our joint projects into a real holiday, and the creative process — a pleasure.
One of these people — photographer Igor Sakharov, whose name has long been a mark of quality among professionals. Although he likes to point out that he considered himself a craftsman in photography, without pretending to the high rank of the artist, but when you looking at his work you realize: master is cunning.
Explaining his approach to work, he refers to the old school of painters and Renaissance. His main teachers are Titian and Rembrandt, and the best master-class — visiting the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
It is against the use of Photoshop in order to «embellishment», explaining that «there is a photo-graphy, she’s light painting, not a photo-shopo-graphy .» Perhaps that is why he repeatedly became the winner of various competitions pictures — both in Russia and far beyond its borders.
With Igor interesting to work: he not only has a brilliant technique and an unerring sense of the author’s intent, main idea, laid by us. Together with him we made such strong projects like Bourgeois, Deluxe, Alterego, Illusion.
