Photographer Viktor Lyagushkin captured in the photograph not an abstract wall painting by a crazy artist, but sylvinite mines from the Urals, located in the city of Berezniki, Perm region. From the mineral sylvinite, which is mined here, potash fertilizers are produced, thereby providing a stable harvest for almost half of the globe.
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.
Photos from the presentation by Tatyana Mordvinova.
Congratulations to Viktor Lyagushkin with publication in the VIEW Magazine. Editors featured one of his stunning photographs from the Third Element Project displaying bright weird pattern of the walls of the labyrinth of Sylvinite mine located at depth -400 m (Urals, Russia). Sylvinite was well known from the middle ages but its real value was discovered in 20th century. Potassium fertilisers produced of the sylvinite saved many countries of famine and crop failure.
