A film by Bogdana (SnowKitty) Vashchenko on how, with what and under what conditions Viktor Lyagushkin made pictures in Chukotka on land and under water in the Bering Sea during his trip in August 2021.
A great article in the online magazine DivePhotoGuide.com about our leader photographer Viktor Lyagushkin and “his own special corner of the Arctic Ocean, Russia’s White Sea”. The article can be read at the link here
Two huge materials at once: about the world’s first art gallery under the ice, which opened on the White Sea on the basis of the touristic center “Arctic Circle” within the framework of our team’s project “Until the ice melts”.
And a second one is a long article about how the shooting for our project “White Sea Bestiary” took place: about creativity, mysticism and photography in the article by Bogdana Vashchenko for those who know German.
On October 29, in the city of Rybinsk, in the Krista gallery, an exhibition of works by Viktor Lyagushkin “20 years under water” was opened, which presents the best photographs of the master. Dolphins and lion-fishes, mysterious depths of underwater caves, the Swan Princess and the Princess of Whales, amazing creatures of the northern seas and much more.
The opening went great, a lot of warm, good words were said. Thanks to the city of Rybinsk and the organizers for the warm welcome!
The goal of the “Until the Ice Melts” project, led by our Phototeam.pro team headed by photographer Viktor Lyagushkin, is to draw attention to the problem of climate change and the melting of the Arctic.
Here we have another recognition of the importance of the project: one more publication abroad, in the German magazine GEO Saison for October 2021, a note on the world’s first under-ice gallery “Until the Ice Melts”.
Orda Cave. Awareness Project is truly immortal. Here is a new publication 10 years after project completing in the Russian Railways magazine. Orda cave is represented among seven the most interesting caves in Russia with photographs by Viktor Lyagushkin.
Coronavirus restrictions have eased a little in Moscow, and our PHOTOTEAM.PRO team dared to participate in the annual PhotoBookMarket 2021, which was held at Winzavod on September 26-27, 2021.
Our new book “White Sea Bestiary” (the author of which is the writer and naturalist Bogdana Vashchenko) was greeted with a bang, both market guests and venerable photographers participating in the exhibition with their books were interested in it.
We brought to the exhibition a signal copy of the collector’s version of “Bestiary” for our fans to browse through.
I think that without false modesty, the Bestiary can be called the number one book of the event.
We are glad to tell you about one of our good friends and PHOTOTEAM.PRO member, artist Denis Lotarev, co-author of our book “White Sea Bestiary”. An article about Denis appeared on the Takie Dela media today with my (Bogdana Vashchenko’s) text and photographs by Viktor Lyagushkin.
What is it like to be an underwater artist, “from what rubbish grow, without knowing shame” masterpieces and ideas coming into a head of a creative person and much more.
