Our collaboration offers us an opportunity for broader understanding, reflection and critical interpretation of our artistic observations. We enjoy working online together and opposing our arguments. Our collaboration has turned into a dialog of our artistic observations and exchange of visual and intellectual experience. We can make use of each other’s theoretical and practical experience and make something new from it. Since we began to work together our artistic views have become broader and at the same time more meaningful. It is a constantly renovating process based on the keen interest and artistic exploration. This is why even after we united this process keeps changing.

Having united, we work both at our common projects and at independent ones. In the course of our collaborative creativity we formulate a new visual language corresponding to our views. At the moment we have come to the mixture of digital techniques which can be noted as digital surrealism. We base our creativity on the ideas of such icons as Alexander Rodchenko, Mark Chagall, Rene Magritte, Andrew Wyeth. At different times we were influenced by the followers of the Dusseldorf School of photography especially Thomas Struth and photographers from other countries: Cindy Sherman, Sophie Calle,  Martin Parr, Nikki S. Lee and others.

We can designate the place of our art in the modern photography as the space for exploration of social issues and creating a new artistic language.

Lyuda Kalinichenko 

I was born in the Urals in Chelyabinsk region. Miass. Now live in Ekaterinburg. I received a degree in interior design. At present I work as a web designer and also do photography.

 

Cameras, films, lamps in our house have been since childhood, my grandfather was engaged in amateur photography.

 

Truly the strength of the frame I felt in 2013 during the week of workshop in GCSS with Frauke Thelking. Photography for me has become not just a way to lock the moment in memory, but also an excellent medium for self-expression.

 

I purposely use everyday things and the aesthetics of kitsch. Using your own body, I transform reality. In my photographs the artist acts as a mediator between the usual perception of reality and the projected possible. Pre-build photos, is part of the practice and makes the end result performative.
