I find astonishing and indescribable beauty in
wreckages of joylessly gray-coloured,
yet enchanting world of steel and concrete.
Ghosts of wicked times are calling for absolution.
Sit beside me, let's listen.

qbnscholar said: BAM! Perhaps one of your most powerful images, among so many. Perhaps because it is so beautiful, and so haunting. Makes my brain explode with stories, and the title is superb, too. Almost envious.
Not almost, but openly envious of your ability to x-ray photographer’s thoughts! Lust… comes first. It seems a bliss. Light filling the room. It’s a light which doesn’t reveal, rather becomes a veil on the mind. Light which makes desolated room look so pure.
After Lust there is Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride. And those are the titles of scenes that will appear. Some of Seven Deadly Sins fuel minds, but united together caused the ironic soviet apocalypse we witnessed half century ago. And everything that remained still reeks of them.

This photograph is special, Fern. I wouldn’t be able to create this murky scene without Martha, my unaware model. Although a faint spectre, she is the muse of this shot. Personification of juxtaposition I found in every detail of this image… It’s the sticky shadow kept at bay by frail light, trope of half closed door, wavering balance of silhouette and negative space. Maybe I’m no ‘master of darkness’ like Lang, yet being compared to him is a grand ennoblement!

Dan, sure! Being able to inspire is a surprising honour. Please feel free to use any of my work. And if you won’t mind, I’d love to see your drawings when you finish! :)
qbnscholar said: The contrast of linear, geometric lines and chaotic “light shapes” is stunning, plus the composition and tones are too. Love the tree horizon line.
Thank you Fernando for your professional view! That was a sneaky shot through the window while I was on my summer internship in hospital, but I checked every floor for best composition!
toastyreaper said: Your photographs are so beautiful and astounding. Every angle, color, and scene, is perfect. You are a true artist, you've done such a wonderful job.
Not even once have I decided to call myself an artist. I always believed you can become one only through others’ eyes. Thank you for finding your perfection in my work. Thank you for noticing every detail and effort. I bow before your words!
juliayusupov said: It says thank you behind you, was that on purpose or a really cool coincidence ? Lol
Haha, that was totally on purpose, Julia! I wanted to get personal as never and thank you all for support… but haven’t got too many photos starring myself, . I rather stay on the safe side of lens :)
(Originally it was: 'Jamie Oliver' written behind me, but shhh!)
Anonymous said: Can you explain the bloody rose picture? I can't seem to see what else it could be
Of course! 'Scarlett' was one of many murals I found inside building located in ghost city of Kłomino, Poland. An unnamed artist treated whole building like canvas for his fascinating, yet little twisted mind. It was really dark in the room, so it’s hard to show that rose petals were painted to resemble meat scraps. It seemed excessive speculation until one saw the basement of the building, with cages and more gore tucked in total darkness. Unfortunately, I had far too weak flash to light up that horrific scenery. I believe it was the only time I felt really uneasy during exploration.
