Two collections of modern photography by progressive artists from Russia and Australia are united in the Moscow Central House of Artists.
The artists come from different schools: Jonathan May is a classical photographer while Aleksey Lubimkin prefers digital art.
Jonathan May's photography is well known in Australia. While just a schoolboy he was nominated for 'Art Express', one of the most prestigious art awards in his home country. He does not use Photoshop or special lighting. Jonathan prefers working at night time and within a natural framework.
“I just love the colour at night, there's softer colour, with no people around,” Jonathan May thinks.
Aleksey Lubimkin on the other hand uses all possible means of modern gadgets for his art pieces. He chooses an object and then changes it until it's unrecognisable.
“After I take a picture I try using different effects on it: black and white, sepia and others. But I prefer bright colours. I love taking pictures of Moscow, but there's not enough sun here, so I make it more colourful,” Aleksey Lubimkin told.
Jonathan came to Moscow not only to exhibit but also to work on his new project: 'Moscow at night'. When he's done shooting the two versions of Moscow will be displayed for Russian art-lovers to decide just which one is brighter.
