During Alexey Kashpersky's first visit to New York he instantly fell in love with the city. He was enamoured by how beautiful and vibrant the city is. This fleeting feeling inspired this photo series which shows a foggy New York City.
It was one of my first visits to New York and I was literally shocked how beautiful and unusual was the mood of the city under the fog. I have never seen anything like that before, so that inspired me to create this series of photos. My inspiration for my work is always the nature that surrounds me. My main work is 3D micro visualization so I am taking a lot from underwater, micro-world and everything that surrounds me. No artist will be so perfect in his creations like nature.
How would you describe your style and who are your inspirations? :)
Hm, It's said, I am 3D artist in the field of medicine and microbiology. By education, I am an artist-sculptor. My favorite photographers are Helmut Newton and Szymon Brodziak, my favorite inspirational artists are Boris Vallejo and Ivan Shishkin.
What advice can you give to your fellow artist / aspiring artist?
Good question. Wish you guys to have a goal and make everything possible to make it happen.
What's your most favorite thing about New York?
When I was a child, on another side of planet, I dream to visit New York someday. Now I am here, and I can "touch it" anytime I want. I think that's my favorite thing. It comes from my childhood dreams.
Alexey used a Canon 6d + Zeiss 35/1.4 for this project.
