Natasha Jdanova (Russia): Le Cheval Blanc (The White Horse)
Play Essay Year after year taking pictures of different countries, towns, streets, men and roads I don’t think why. I’m just observing, making sketches. Photography is my prayer, the patter, the mantra. To think about a book of photographs means thinking about poem, poem-manifesto with description of some rules
of existence, line with a plot and birth of the idea at the end. This set is about a woman, about a beauty and tenderness of not possession. This is a try of observing the nature and beauty of things and creatures, admiring of them. Anyway photography is some kind of aggression, you are always have to be a witness of flowing of other lives – that means you can’t care a lot about the non-interference. It’s better to have time before. Before you’ve overstepped this verge between an artist and a reality. And pictures that taken on this verge seem to be the miracle, the award for your patience and tact. I think that creation is happening for happiness, happiness of people which may look with you through the photography on this wonderful in our world – sky and grass. love and tenderness. I don’t want to think up words to describe what I see – I have pictures for that.
