Meet our new project #Seagull! Teaser is ready, documentary and feature short coming soon! Twice world champion and record holder in free diving Natalie Avseenko and National Geographic (Russia) photographer, Nikon Ambassador, Subal Pro Team member Viktor Lyagushkin starring. See them at 27th of July, 2016
“Museum of one picture” is an exhibition which has started in the framework of the Festival of Contemporary Photography at Moscow Exhibition Center, pavilion №59 “Grain”. The exhibition is represented by the only one photograph: the work by Viktor Lyagushkin “We are of one blood.”
This is a picture from the project “Princess of Whales”, on which the two-time champion and world record holder Natalie Avseenko swims with beluga whales under the ice of the White Sea.
On our photo to this post Natalie stands herself beside this remarkable photograph.
We were very touched to find on Twitter a poem inspired by one of Viktor’s photographs with Natalie Avseenko posing under the ice of the White sea. It’s amazing how accurate the author Shay Lee (@shayoflee) feels the spirit of the picture and we are so glad that our work inspires others. Thank you, Shay Lee!
Some ideas are very inspiring. So Viktor Lyagushkin’s Princess of Whales do. Moscow artist Irina Ratina created her vision of a naked woman swimming with white whales.
The world’s only underice UW artist, Denis Lotarev Art will join the #Seagull expedition. He is going to draw a picture of the Seagull (Natalie Avseenko) staying underwater during photo and video shooting.
This is a vivid illustration how people share ideas if they are really good. Do wish Denis to create a new vision and add one more dimension into the project.
Freedom, love and flight – it’s hard to say how they are related, but somehow the simple words excite all the people of our planet. They make us dream, make our hearts run faster, this is something that is worth living.
Our project is named #Seagull. Seagull is not just a bird, it is a symbol of struggle, symbol of soul, connection between the worlds, a personification of grief and happiness. It is Jonathan Livingston Seagull flying from the parable by Richard Bach; it is the Stormy Petrel by Maxim Gorky. It is a story of difficult obstacles, intractable obstacles, the will, desire, and feelings of a person who wins what cannot be beat. Continue reading
We were glad to communicate with so professional journalists asking very important questions and answered with great pleasure.
And the result is an interview we are very proud of.
Our congratulations to our team member, our heart and conscience, twice world champion in freediving Natalie Avseenko, who became Freediving Instructor Trainer SSI at 20 May 2013.
Great job, Natalie! We are so proud of you!
Note: 5000 or more freedive sessions have been done by her, as the card reads. Just imagine, what does it mean!
