A book is about an impossibility of female love in the times of advanced communication.
"Two people. One is really eager. He has fire, tornado, beauty, flights, relocations, away with the old, and probably here is the new life - he is sure. She is writing to him. Words, messages do not reach.
Something's wrong with the connection, Although it is okey to argue, convince, forgive, love, talk, yearn, act, count days or weeks, think for hours, write...And never send."
"Iphonographique" originated in 2012, a year I started a lot and with pleasure taking pictures with my phone and an Instagram app. Iphonography opened my second wind. The thing is, till that moment I worked in a rather narrow paradigme of a black and white photography. And when i suddenly became able to feel and understand color, I was very inspired. I decided to combine all these colorful photos in a book and proposed an opportunity to write a text for it to my friend contemporary movie director Valeria Gai Germanica. And in the year 2015 all this iphonography and two no less poetic Germanica's texts came together to tell you a new exciting story not on photography, but on bizarre ways of living, loving and suffering.
