Photographer Fyodor Telkov announced a series of mystical photographs of the Urals. Satka is included in the objects to be shot. One can see a new large-scale project of the famous author in September at the Urals Industrial Biennale of Contemporary Art.


The photographer recreated the technique of the founder of colour photography in Russia, Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky. As Fyodor Telkov said, his project for the Urals Biennale will include 60 photos. All of them are made with the same principle that Prokudin-Gorsky used, but using modern technologies. Thanks to this, all moving objects on photos turn into shadows. According to those who have already evaluated the images, thanks to the shadows photos have a mystical effect. Some note that Telkov's works “are made in the style of David Lynch.”

Photos can be seen on the main site of the festival - in the building of former instrument engineering plant. They will be presented in the form of an installation. The curator of the project is Zhenya Chaika.

Fedor Telkov was born in 1986 in Nizhny Tagil, now he lives and works in Yekaterinburg. Member of the Union of Photo Artists of Russia since 2008.
