Photographic Duets by Sasha Gentsis
The Duets is a three-part series called “Duets of the World”, “Duets of Russia” and “Winter Duets”. In this project Sasha explores and compares objects, structures, textures and shapes created both by nature and humans. By connecting them in “Duets”, that is, pairs of photos with certain conceptual similarities, Sasha seeks to emphasize the emotional basis that grounds his work and most eminently succeeds. The viewer is constantly confronted with simple and more sophisticated premises, such as the relationship between past and future, social interactions or the very essence of life.
The Duets of the World present photographs from different parts of the world. Meanwhile, the Duets of Russia extends this idea while introducing a slight twist. In this series of photographs, Sasha draws a parallel between photographs from his native Russia and photographs from other countries. Winter Duets is a special collection created for the open-air exhibition "Moscow's Photoarsenal" on Tverskoi Boulevard.
