Juan Curto Vernacular and contemporary merged together in a great story.
Russian photographer Emil Gataullin creates magic out of nothing. From the most banal everyday scenes he manages to form images that exude an extraordinary spell. His theme is the Russian village: a life far away from big decisions, sensations and big cities. Gataullin’s work is at the same time documentary and photographic poem, it dances on the thin line between deliberate sparseness and restraint and affectionate composition. His pictures neither glorify nor denigrate. They are a declaration of love for a Russia beyond Moscow.
