…come closer



…they love  …they suffer …they smile  …they fight

At the 04.01.2020 we opened my photo exhibition at the Sverkov Gallery in Tver/Russia.

Contrary to Gogols ‘Dead Souls’ I found so many living souls in Russia during my portraits shootings, that I decide to share this in form of an exhibition.

Devided in four categories the photos were spread over halls of these wonderful gallery.

  • GENESIS , from painting to photography: A photgrafically interpretation of works of the painter Alexeij Jogolev
  • CHILDHOOD, the living souls of the kids
  • THE LIFE, a variation of deep emotions

This day was stunning. I’m still deeply moved. So many nice people and chats. I never expected so many emotions shared together that day.

This opening was supported by pianist Jewgenij Sokolowski who interpreted the photography in his unique style live at the grand piano.

My lovely thanks to my wife Victoria, the magic Boutique Anthropologie (especially Anatol), Diana & Evgenij (you both are great), everybody from the Sverkov Gallery, John & Losha, Alexeij, the most beautiful models in the world (Valeria, Kate und Sasha), all the nice people for dancing through the portrait shootings and everybody who made this night unforgettable !

  3. How wonderful, Markus! I’m so glad that you had an emotional night and a good turnout. The exhibition looks marvellous. Žive duše – it’s exactly the same as we say in Slovenian. 😀 What a great start of the year! Let it continue this way.

    Sorry, bin leider wie immer viel zu spät dran bei dir vorbei zu schauen….Die Ausstellung ist euch wirklich großartig gelungen! Habe mir eben auch das Video angeschaut. Zwar habe ich nichts verstanden, aber die bewegten Bilder transportieren sehr viel mehr Eindrücke und Atmosphäre! Vielen Dank fürs Teilen! 😀

    Ganz liebe Grüße! 🙋🏻‍♀️
