Couple years ago we were sitting in my kitchen, sharing some ideas and inspirational photos, discussing our projects and plans.
Some of the imagery we liked and decided to shoot this series of images with furniture. Yulia did couple of test shots at home. We planned it, produced it, shot it, edited it. Just the 2 of us. We called it Furniture chronicles.
This project is a study of the relationship between content, color and composition.
It’s a study of what’s pleasing and what’s not.
When you see an Image – you know you like it. But you can’t explain. And then you say – there is something about it. That SOMETHING – is what we are after.
