Mira Nedyalkova

I have always loved photography as art, but i started with drawing and I was also was a model.Later in 2007 I discovered photography as a means to express myself and completely replaced painting. My photographs are not exactly a photographs, my creations are somewhere in between paintings and photography. In my images I use pain as a beauty, erotic as a psychological way of life. I express myself and my intimate inner life. Indeed, the majority of my works are in the water, this of course is not accidental. From many points of view, for me the water is very suitable means to express what I carry in me and recreate my ideas.. It’s really inspiring to me the water is my creation. The creation the life, the power…the water is filled with tremendous energy. It is the winner of pleasure and delight it gives life, but also poses a risk, threat, it can destroy us. I love the transparency  and purity of water light and reflecting and transformations that is suffered in contact with another medium. For me the water is highly erotic element precisely because of the opposites that brings. Water is the one who quenches our  thirst and saves us. Lust for life of each of us, the thirst for love and the eternal struggle and attempt to erase, to dull to heal the pain, sadness, loneliness…

Mira Nedyalkova – I have always loved photography as art, but i started with drawing and I was also was a model. Later in 2007 I discovered photography as a means to express myself and completely replaced painting.The water is my creation.

My photographs are not exactly a photographs,my creations are somewhere in between paintings and photography. In my images I use pain as a beauty, erotic as a psychological way of life. I express myself and my intimate inner life. In my photographs you would find beauty and strong will for life, sorrow and pain, love and eroticism as constant part of our life…


I would love to connect all that feelings. For me that is the only way to know the sweetness to be alive, to know the happiness and become part of the beauty of life.

In my photos the model (character) is not only beautiful, she must brings not only joy but also sadness, she exudes eroticism and coldness, she is filled with joy.. but the pain is forever with her. My model is my main element, but in fact it is almost as if it is not there at all, all there is is my soul and my world. My images do not present the model- her nice shapes or beautiful eyes. The eyes are closed in almost every image, my character is disembodied, her nakedness isleft unseen, forgotten… eroticism is what fascinates the viewer, but not to excite his senses, but to enter his soul, the essence … we sink deep intoyour heart and your mind … to help us to know, to see nearly our fears and hidden desires and to accept them, to accept them in order to enjoy them.

Majority of my works are in the water. From many points of view, for me the water is very suitable means to express what I carry in me and recreate my ideas. First I will saythat from a technical point of view, shooting water brings me great joy. Incontact with light, shadows, shapes and colors the water transforms in an incredible way and the final effect is outstanding and always surprising. It’s really inspiring to me. From the artistic point of view and as a vehicle, the water is my creation. The creation, the life, and the power…the water is filled with tremendous energy. It is the winner of pleasure and delight, it gives life, but also poses a risk, threat, it can destroy us. I love the transparency and purity of water, light and reflecting and transformations that is suffered in contact with another medium. For me, the water is highly erotic element precisely because of the opposites that brings. Water is the one who quenches our thirst and saves us. Lust for life of each of us, the thirst for love and the eternal struggle and attempt to erase, to dull, to heal the pain, sadness, loneliness…

I was born and grew up in Moscow, where I currently live. I have interests in many art, science and life areas, but this site is entirely about photography.

I’m doing photography for more than 5 years. Artistic nudes were my main interest from the beginning. My melancholic temperament, life experience and inner conflicts defined the meaning of my works. I don’t usually plan every little detail. I try to create an image, a story and a mood that will go well with the model and her inner world. And so the unique beauty of each person I work with is captured. Despite the nudity I actually consider my works as portraits. As for the naked body, it helps translating emotions and also emphasizes the natural beauty of the model.
That being said, I’m ready to apply my knowledge and experience to other related photography areas like fetish or beauty.

I’m also a founder of the photo-community dirtyangels.net, which is generally for the artists like me. So if you’re a skilled photographer, a model or just a fan of the dark beauty, we’ll be happy to see you there!

Photography for me is a means to express my deep respect and admiration
for the beauty of the female form, and for women as themselves.
Nature has created a gift, a monument- the female body- which is natural in its beauty and  also absolutely perfect in its curves and shapes.
The significance of such a creation means the inexhaustibility and timelessness of the theme of female nudes in photography

Igor Amelkovich

Igor Amelkovich






 Hi, I’m Igor Amelkovich. I reside in the city of Chelyabinsk, southern Ural mountains in Russia. I studied radio engineering at the  South-Ural State University. Photography has been my focus since 1999.I didn’t held camera in my hands before and I’m self-  taught. My work is film-based and I use Hasselblad 503CW and two lenses, Planar 80/2,8 and Sonnar 150/4.

 I eschew digital processing, using it only to retouch dust and scratches. If you want to know how I make my nude and erotic  photos read the article “How i do this

 Artistically, I maintain two interests: landscape photography and the nude. For me a woman is nature’s concentrated form of  beauty. I like to photograph a self-assured subject, ones who’s comfortable sharing her beauty.

My works won numerous awards both in regional and international exhibitions.

Artemide

E’ incredibile come passa il tempo.. senza rendermene conto ho lasciato trascorrere troppi mesi senza pubblicare nuovi lavori. Cercherò di rimediare (sempre se a qualcuno interessi, chiaro..)

Questa piccola  tela (150 x 90 cm) è stato realizzata per un’esposizione avvenuta durante un convegno sul “Made in Italy” a Beijing, Cina il 6/7 Dicembre.
Come per le altre presentate nel sito, è realizzata a Tempera ed Acrilico su un fondo preparato a pietra pomice.

Crepuscolo

L’allegoria del crepuscolo è un soggetto che mi ha sempre affascinato. Come per tutte le allegorie (figura retorica per cui un concetto viene espresso attraverso delle immagini) i livelli di lettura del dipinto sono molteplici e spesso stabiliti con il cliente in fase progettuale.
Il lavoro è stato effettuato sul soffitto del baldacchino per una residenza privata vicino Campobasso.
Le dimensioni della tavola non sono immense e, essendo la parte superiore di un letto chiuso da tendaggi, la visione della scena è strettamente “vincolata” dall’essere sdraiati:
L’ultima cosa che si vede prima di dormire, la prima quando ci si sveglia…

East meets West

Dopo molti mesi di assenza, torno finalmente a pubblicare qualche lavoro realizzato in questo lungo periodo intercorso. 
Cominciamo con l’ultimo “arrivato”:
Si è appena concluso la XVIII edizione del “SALON” (annual gathering of international decorative painters) che si è svolta a Tokyo dal 23 al 26 Maggio. 
Questa manifestazione, che ogni anno richiama un numero sempre più grande tra i migliori artisti e decoratori al mondo, viene ospitata ogni anno in una differente città internazionale. 
Per la prima volta dalla sua fondazione, dopo anni di permanenza tra il vecchio continente e gli Stati Uniti, il  SALON è sbarcato nel lontano Oriente. Questa occasione ha fornito lo spunto per il tema di quest’anno: 
“East meets West”: Sharing. 
Personalmente si tratta della mia quarta partecipazione in questo meraviglioso evento, dopo Bergamo 2009, Versailles 2010, Hamburg 2012. Ogni volta è una gioia immensa e, alla fine della settimana, non puoi fare a meno di aspettare l’anno che verrà per condividere nuovamente gioia e pittura con i colleghi/amici di tutto il mondo. “SALON Tokyo 2013” è stata un’edizione STREPITOSA, un ricordo che porterò con me a lungo. 
Il pannello espositivo che ho preparato per l’occasione è il mio omaggio alla cultura grafica Giapponese attraverso dei simboli che rimandano alla tradizione decorativa europea ed, in particolare, all’Italia (un po’ di campanilismo è d’obbligo non credete?). 
Spero che Michelangelo mi perdoni….

… e vissero tutti felici e contenti!

Con l’ultima pennellata a questo dipinto, si conclude anche la lunga serie di allegorie che ho realizzato nel corso degli ultimi mesi. 
Spero vivamente che siano state di vostro gradimento quanto lo sono state per me. 
Dipingere la figura umana, anche se in maniera prettamente decorativa, è un continuo stimolo a migliorare. A differenza dei paesaggi o delle nature morte, dove all’occorrenza si posso “mascherare” alcune incertezze o punti deboli, con la figura il margine d’errore è minimo. Quando si dipinge un piede o una mano, il rischio “moncherino” è sempre in agguato e per le espressioni facciali, se è possibile, va ancora peggio!  Chiunque dipinga sa di cosa parlo…
Ora più che mai, guardando all’operato dei grandi Maestri del passato (ma anche tanti bravissimi artisti contemporanei), la mia ammirazione per le loro opere è enorme. 
Ho ancora taaaaanta strada da fare.. per il momento però, me ne vado in vacanza!

6 metri sopra il cielo…

Anche se il titolo può trarre in inganno, ovviamente questo post non ha nulla a che fare con il libro, che peraltro non ho mai letto (e me ne vanto!). E’ solo un mal riuscito gioco di parole tra la lunghezza della tela ed il soggetto raffigurato (che simpatico umorista eh?).
  

Kuskovo was the summer country house

and estate of the Sheremetev family. Built in the mid-18th century, it was originally situated several miles to the east of Moscow but now is part of the East District of the city. It was one of the first great summer country estates of the Russian nobility, and one of the few near Moscow still preserved. Today the estate is the home of the Russian State Museum of Ceramics, and the park is a favourite place of recreation for Muscovites.

The Great Gatchina Palace..St Petersburg Russia

     The Great Gatchina Palace   was built in 17661781 in Gatchina town (Russia) by Antonio Rinaldi for Count Grigori Grigoryevich Orlov who was a favourite of Ekaterina II. The Gatchina Palace is located on the hill above Lake Serebryannoe. It combines themes of a medieval castle and a country residence. Palace interiors are exemplary of Russian classicism at the turn of 18th19th centuries. The Gatchina Palace was one of the favourite residences of the Imperial family.

  
Catherine the Great took such a great liking of the Gatchina Palace and park, that at Orlov’s death in 1783, she bought it from his heirs and presented it to her son, the future Emperor Paul I.
Paul I was the master of Gatchina for eighteen years. He invested considerable resources and used his experience from his travels around Europe to make Gatchina an exemplary palace and town. During the 1790s, Paul expanded and rebuilt much of the palace, and renovated interiors in the sumptuous Neoclassical style (illustration, left). Paul I graced the park with numerous additions, bridges, gates, and pavilions, such as “The Isle of Love” , “The Private garden”, “The Holland garden” and “The Labyrinth” among many other additions. In 1796, after the death of his mother, Catherine the Great, Paul became Emperor Paul I of Russia, and granted Gatchina the status of Imperial City ( official residence of the Russian Emperors.)
A remarkable monument of Paul’s reign is the Priory Palace   on the shore of the Black Lake. Constructed for the Russian Grand Priory of the Order of St John, it was presented to the Order by a decree of Paul I of Russia dated 23 August 1799.
After Paul’s death the grand palace and park were owned by his widow, Maria Feodorovna, from 1801 to 1828. Paul’s son, Nicholas I, was the master from 1828 to 1855. He made the most significant expansion of the palaces and parks, adding the Arsenal Halls to the main palace. The Arsenal Halls served as the summer residence of the emperor. In 1851, Nicholas I erected a monument to his father, Paul I, in front of the Palace. In 1854 the railroad between St. Petersburg and Gatchina was opened. At that time the city of Gatchina’s territory was expanded by incorporation of several villages and vicinity.
Alexander II of Russia used Gatchina Palace as his second residence. He built a hunting village and other additions for his Imperial Hunting Crew, and turned the area south of Gatchina into a retreat where the Tsar and his guests could indulge in living in the unspoiled wilderness and of northwestern Russia. Alexander II also made updates and renovations in the main Gatchina Palace.
Alexander III of Russia made Gatchina his primary residence, after experiencing the shock and stress of his father’s assassination. The palace became known as ‘The Citadel of Autocracy’ after the Tsar’s reactionary policies. He lived most of his time in Gatchina Palace. Here he signed decrees and held diplomatic receptions, theatrical performances, masquerades and costumed balls, and other events and entertainment. Alexander III introduced technological modernizations in the Gatchina Palace and parks such as electric lights, a telephone network, non-freezing water pipes and a modern sewage system.
Nicholas II, the last Russian tsar, spent his youth in the Gatchina Palace. His mother, Empress Maria Feodorovna, widow of Alexander III, was the patron of the city of Gatchina and Gatchina Palace and parks.

 

The Moika Palace or Yusupov Palace

The Moika Palace or Yusupov Palace , literally the Palace of the Yusupovs on the Moika was once the primary residence in St. Petersburg, Russia of the House of Yusupov. The building was the site of Grigori Rasputin’s murder in 1916. The palace was first built around 1770 by the French architect Jean-Baptiste Vallin de la Mothe. Over the years numerous well-known architects worked on the palace, and it is known for the hodgepodge of architectural styles. A. Mikhailov reconstructed the building in 1830-s when the Yusupov’s became owners of this palace . This time the modern appearance of the palace was formed.

Yusupov Palace in Greater Kharitonievsky lane ..

Yusupov Palace in Greater Kharitonievsky lane .. As befits a Gothic castle from the nightmare began the history of the Yusupov blood. According to legend, in its place stood in XVI century house, in which Ivan the Terrible during the rest of falconry, tortured prisoners and indulged in self-flagellation. Hence the cost is around Moscow network of underground tunnels, which allowed the king to appear in different parts of the city, bringing terror to the subjects. This legend tells in his memoirs last Felix – Felix (junior): “At the end of the last century, my parents upgraded house and found the same underpass. Going down there, they saw a long corridor and skeletons chained to the walls. As a child, I thought that the souls of martyred live around here, and always afraid to meet with a ghost. “Felix says about life in Moscow house with a mixture of delight and horror. Vaulted halls with paintings, dark passages, thick carpets, damp steps – all in the child’s imagination was formed in the picture alluring and frightening. But what I saw and knew the young Yusupov Palace, had little relation to the time of the king-murderer.
