Most of times, a great set of photographs serves to generate a feeling, awaken an emotion and arouse the imagination without applying to the outer world. But when there’s more of the story to be told and the blank pages don’t seem to suffice, small fragments of reality cross borders to assure the true message is being delivered. Making use of composition and prints, Oleg Bagmutskiy stumbled upon the extraordinary.
Starring model Tatyana Zhukova, the unsual photo shoot builds upon the beautiful contrast set between the universe of photography and the real world, by making use of little traces left behind in the concrete life. Meaningful notes forming a puzzle, cigarette stumps serving as subtle metaphors, matches, pills and blades handled as words, relate the story of a lost love, of anguish and hopefulness.
A jumpsuit featuring paisley prints worn under a navy blazer, styled with high-heels and delicate pieces of jewelry belongs to the faded portrait of romance, adding to the character and rounding out the unexpected sense of style.
