IN CONVERSATION WITH IVAN DOMARATSKIY
Photography by Ivan Domaratskiy
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Inspired by the Pictorialists and the films of Andrei Tarkovsky, Russian photographer Ivan Domaratskiy captures scenes in black and white, smoky, blurry, and veiled, achieved with monocles and soft focus optics. He portrays the elusive heritage, nature and ancient architecture as something ghostly, contrasting with sharp and vivid photographs of reality.
