I always explore with a camera: most recently I have been fascinated with structures which were the symbols of Soviet modernism, the triumph of man over nature, but now stand consumed by the natural landscape. I also find a stark and beautiful contrast in the look of a modern skyscraper set against a timeless architectural masterpiece.
Photography allows me to express my keen interest in the diversity of life and human condition; and photographing architecture is one aspect of that, which resonates with me in particular. Taking pictures of modern structures and bustling cities as well as crumbling old relics and abandoned villages allows me to relate to a whole range of emotions and intimately understand the beauty of the world we live in.
Hello, I am Arseny Rossikhin
and I photograph architecture.
I use photography as a tool of expressing my interest in the city and its people. I tell stories about nature, architecture, city and people through an interaction of angles, patterns, lines, shadows and light coming together in a composition.
