Yuri Shalimov (from Russia) These days our world is overcomplicated and overloaded with different useless stuff, so Yuri tries to be as minimalistic as possible, leaving only the pure naked body in the frame. For him nakedness is one of the most powerful symbols of harmony and openness to the world. What inspires him - is the art of antiquity, time when interconnection between nature and people has not been lost. His work revolves around beauty, grace and power - those three timeless treasures. When he shoots, he makes a kind of research for harmony. He searches for postures, which are most expressive in terms of emotional and physical state for every model at the given moment, which leads to the sense of harmony and unity in the final image. In couple shots his aim is to show the interaction of the feminine and the masculine, the ying and the yang.
