“Angel Hunters” – our article with Viktor Lyagushin for the Russian diving magazine “Extreme Depth” about underwater world of the White Sea and the everyday life of the photographer on the Arctic Circle. Lyrics, biology and travel notes.
Yesterday, November 4, our exhibition “Impossible Is Possible” opened in the House of Scientists in the town of Troitsk near Moscow. It shows photos from various projects: #Seagull, Genie Jar, Being a Dolphin, Princess of Whales. In total, 18 works of 60x90cm are presented.
The exposition aroused keen interest. Photographers who came to the opening were interested in how the images were taken, which cameras and lenses were used, and asked a lot of questions about the physics and technology of underwater shooting.
The exhibition takes place as part of the All-Russian tour of the Photoparade in Uglich and will last until November 14.
October 4, Moscow hosted the presentation of the sixth issue of Yevgeny Feldman’s slick magazine Svoy, which was completely dedicated to Viktor Lyagushkin’s art. Photos and stories “from caves and seas” on the pages of the new issue, and even more remarkable stories by Viktor during the presentation captivated the audience.

All Russian-language Internet is delighted with these interviews – very long, but so interesting that it is impossible to break away. Ivan asks his interlocutors the most ordinary simple questions: “What do you read?”, “When did you last cry?” and so on, and we see how the personality of the respondents reveals, even through the hard and thick shells of celebrity masks.
According to Viktor, it’s impossible to say that Ivan Survillo somehow emotionally colors the conversation, but you feel very comfortable with him, and you really want to give a sincere answer.
And the interview is here.
