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.

Our team takes part in the charitable project Reefcalendar by Martin Aigner. PHOTOTEAM.PRO member, Nikon Ambassador SUBAL Pro Team member Viktor Lyagushkin entered the project with his photography “Swan Swims Over the Sky”. There are also such famous photographers as Lynn Funkhouser and Christian Vizl and others.
Hotel Le Méridien Vienna hosted an exhibition with the photographs included. Exhibition is open for visitors from 29th of November till 15th of January. All money raised during the project will be spent for salvation of reefs of Southern Seas.
These unusual shots had been taken by Viktor Lyagushkin in the Blue Lake (Caucasus, Russia). Editors of the Diver Magazine (Canada) choose the photographs for their December 2015 mini feature to show the beauty of the birds and highlight an unusual approach in underwater photography.
Famous Russian designer, Tatyana Parfionova used the photograph of a swan by Viktor Lyagushkin for her impressive dress which illustrates the idea of her exhibition dedicated to the world’s greatest ballet-dancer Maya Plesetskaya.
The fidelity and love, happiness and tragedy of a swan touches the bottom of a soul and is the accurate expression of the perfect ballet-dancer, says Tatyana Parfionova.
“People cannot fly, but underwater they may feel weightless. That is why the director of a movie based on a popular Russian fairy tale decided to film a scene of a fight between the Swan Princess and Wicked Wizard-Kite underwater. I had been invited as a backstage underwater photographer and found the Swan Princess was more than charming. Icouldn’t use any lights as these would spoil the scene, but the studio light board was more than enough to create a beautiful backlight underwater, and the chromakey backing formed a nicely textured backdrop.”
