Igor Vasiliadis started photography when he was 8 years. At that time his first camera was a Soviet one Smena 6, and then a Zenit E. Since childhood, photography became his main obsession for the rest of his life. When Igor grew up, he started to take pictures with medium format camera and achieved real success in it, winning national and international contests. Then Igor started to use large format cameras with authentic 19th century optics using silver and platinum sensitive materials for taking pictures. Later on, with the appearance of the high-quality digital technologies, Igor began to work professionally in this area too.
The two main Igor Vasiliadis’s working formats are commercial and art. His portfolio includes portraits of world known celebrities from the world of fashion, cinema and sports.
Considering works which has been done in the art format, it can be said that in his art Igor combines technologies of the past in the format of the future. Working with old technologies, lenses and chemical processes, the artist does not capture reality, he creates his own world in his pictures.
One of the main focuses of his work is shooting and printing technology, preserved from the middle of XIX century and known as wet-collodion process on the plates of blackened silver. The artist makes unique photo-canvas. All covering imperfections are original and make a special entourage, which, combined with the image, creates an unusual feeling.
Quote: That’s what the author says about his work: “I love the equipment and technologies, which were proven by centuries of practice, those employing long exposures. This allows model’s soul to break out from the momentary world of emotions and appear in all of its multifaceted beauty. Dark tonality, artifacts of drying emulsion and all the mystics brought by silver and cyanides create the world of mystery, covered from our eyes by temporary and momentary emotions. They can be seen only during rear momentary lapses of reason, when we drop out of reality”.
