// Victor is a Minsk based photographer shooting mostly in black and white. His goal is to catch that fleeting beauty and the aesthetics of people and life around him. We are pleased to show a photo art series that is different from scenes he usually captures – he calls it “Mirrorness”.
“Candid emotions, interactions and untouched daily life moments which possibly won’t happen ever again are things inspiring me to go out and do street photography,” he says. But in “Mirrorness”, Victor has captured the tendency of objects to reflect and show up as a part of reflected scene.
“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.”
What draws you to art?
“It is something I can’t simply put in words 🙂 I’d say it’s all about emotions, connection with the creator, and limitlessness.”
What do you like best about this photographic project?
“I like the possibility to see and create some sort of parallel reality using combination of those reflections, emotions, people and objects in front or behind the glass. And, which is the most interesting, viewers will see and interpret such photos on their own. The call to imagine, and some sort of “offline” dialogue with the viewer inspires me.”
Victor´s images were taken in Kiev and Krakow while traveling. Sometimes objects reflect things as they are. Sometimes we see just beautiful light, shadows and shapes. Sometimes reflections represent different, unusual, non-existent worlds and merge reality with a looking glass. Sometimes we can find in it some meaning and coincidences and even ourselves. And everyone sees it according to their own vision. “Mirrorness is the property of my eyes to reflect people, my surroundings, and myself in my own way,” Victor explains.
