In a manner of speaking
Semantics won't do
In this life that we live we live we only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrified
So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That just like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing.
— Tuxedomoon, "In A Manner Of Speaking", 1985.
In this project, I turn to the photography because the photograph itself gives me the opportunity to explore the range of issues that directly concerns me today such as attitudes toward human sexuality and corporeality, the relationships between the individual and society, between the individual and the state in the context of the modern post-Soviet country.
The photography becomes a kind of an intimate diary for me, a way of interacting with the environment and at the same time as a tool for the study of its formation.
