The two main Igor Vasiliadis’s working formats are commercial and art. His portfolio includes portraits of world known celebrities from the world of fashion, cinema and sports.
Considering works which has been done in the art format, it can be said that in his art Igor combines technologies of the past in the format of the future. Working with old technologies, lenses and chemical processes, the artist does not capture reality, he creates his own world in his pictures.
One of the main focuses of his work is shooting and printing technology, preserved from the middle of XIX century and known as wet-collodion process on the plates of blackened silver. The artist makes unique photo-canvas. All covering imperfections are original and make a special entourage, which, combined with the image, creates an unusual feeling.
Quote: This is what the author says about his work: “I love the equipment and technologies, which were proven by centuries of practice, those employing long exposures. This allows model’s soul to break out from the momentary world of emotions and appear in all of its multifaceted beauty. Dark tonality, artifacts of drying emulsion and all the mystics brought by silver and cyanides create the world of mystery, covered from our eyes by temporary and momentary emotions. They can be seen only during rear momentary lapses of reason, when we drop out of reality”.
