Calmness in Aggression
(1 of 12)

Bogdan Zwir is a photographic artist in St. Petersburg, Russia. He says he did not receive special education in either photography or the arts. He writes in his broken English, "I comprehended independently the secrets of processing a photo... The main aim in creativity is to invent unreal life but to maintain a realistic performance...[with] dominance of emotional, psychological and esoteric components... There is no place for accident...The image appears and lives, having its past, present and future. It breathes, pulsates, provokes the spectator to mutual conclusions and experiences. The movement excited in the viewer has neither beginning nor end. There are always questions left... You would ask what it is after all - photography or painting? On the one hand, technically it is photography. But the final impression is painting." Included here is an example of 12 of his works both in color and black-and-white. His art can be found in private collections in Russia and abroad.
