Personality, bright colors and "truth"

Alisher Giyazov

Photographer

Russia, Kaliningrad


What first made you pick up a camera and start taking photos? And when?

Breaking up with my girlfriend 2 years ago, made me try something new for myself. Quite by chance, an old analog camera of my parents came to hand - the choice was obvious. What makes a good picture?

Personality, bright colors and "truth". In my case, I have never had a photo shoot. All the photos are by chance in the course of my life.

What is your favorite thing to photograph?

People in the "underground" scene. All people are different. It's a huge experience. Who is your favorite person to photograph?

Girls or representatives of street art. Do you prefer Analog or Digital and why?

Of course, in analog photography there is much more soul. but I rather prefer "90s fashion" more . and this can be achieved in a number of ways. What else do you like to do?

I plan to create my own merch and pay more focus to VHS video.

When was the last time someone took a photo of you?

Ooo. this happens quite often. I often give the camera in the hands of my model, because the" frame in my head " will be able to portray the way I want-only I. What’s a favorite moment you’ve captured?

Like I said, 90% of my work is done in the process of my real life, so every photo is my favorite moment of the day. If I try to choose my most favourite, photos with my new girlfriend immediately after the first sex. What or who has had the biggest influence on you?

The desire to stand out. Do you have a favorite a Russian photographer or other artist?

I'll just leave it on instagram - @mxmptrv What’s your advice to the world?
