There are a lot of talented photographers who come from Russia and Ukraine, I often find myself attracted to their artistic pictures and their philosophy, I can't really say that there's a special thing about Russian artistic nudes because every photographer has his own style, which makes it quite hard to find the common denominator between all of the pictures, but I sure do enjoy a lot of photographs that are taken by Russian and Ukrainian photographers.
I have come across Mikhail Palinchak's website not a long time ago, I was impressed by some of his works and thought that I must share this discovery with you. I personally prefer most of his black and white photographs, maybe that's because most of them have a slightly hazy effect which make them look dreamy, those images really do ignite the imagination and this is how true art is supposed to be.
One of the images that has attracted my attention in this gallery is image number 10, the colored image in which the model is carrying a doll. A doll can really by a symbol for a lot of things, but my personal interpretation is that it's a gesture of anger against the pressure that wants all women to be like dolls with unproportional bodies and layers of make-up.
I won't really interpret any other image as any interpretation is really influenced by the personal experience of the viewer, this is one of the reasons why art is so inspiring.
I hope that you will enjoy this Mikhail Palinchak gallery.
