I like to photograph anything and everything, if it catches my eye and resonates with me. Have had an interest in art and photography for...

Andrei Belinksii photography website

Hello again,

Andrei is my former site director from the Russian Klin Yar excavations, and a good friend. Here are some of his thoughts on photography:

“We constantly look into the world with empty eyes, paying attention solely to our own thoughts about common and everyday concerns, thus putting the magical world around to the background of one’s existence. At times when you manage to get out of this flow of time, you start to look anew at faces of people and animals, light and shadow, colours and structures. Those things that remind you of your childhood when everything was new and fresh. I call this an emergence of the Vision. Photography then becomes a part of your world view, even a part of your life that for a long time you managed to go without. It becomes an available tool and a means of reflecting your world, the world that is within you as that is without. The more we travel the more chance we have to see and experience the things that are absent in our everyday life – new aromas, different faces and cities, lights and colours, cultures and customs. All these sharpens your senses and you want to transfer these experiences in a form that is comprehensible by others. Your vision is improved by the knowledge that you possess, your life experience, your empathy with objects of your photograph. After that out of hundreds of shots you choose those that correspond to the world within and without.” – Andrei Belinskii

I couldn’t agree more :o)

Please check out his site. He’s not on redbubble as I think he just doesn’t have time for it. Please drop him a line and say hello from me, if you like his work.

Thanks,
