aniɣu

I was born somewhere, and then, unfortunately grew up. Along the way I saw the world, I learned about important things, I learned to be kind, I fell in love with the Siberian Winter, went to some college, worked with different famous and important people. Then I ended up where I am now. A  freelancer. And this is what I am doing.

What I am doing makes me happy. No matter what state I am in, making art helps me to express my ups and downs. I am a rule breaker. It is like dancing in the sunshine, while trudging through the rain.  As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you something else is a great accomplishment”.  And this is what I am trying to do, to be myself.  I am always trying to take time to pay attention to my surroundings as I am not a “know- it- all” person and I will never be. There is all the time something new to learn. Each passing moment is a new life experience for me and makes me grow into the person I want to be.

“Who am I really”? That is a question that I am trying to answer every day. For some reason I was almost all my life a sad person, other times I felt empty or choked by dark thoughts and other times “I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.” (Edgar A.P.). I was lost in myself trying to find my true self out or I was “emotionally action-packed”.

Anyway, what drives an artist is a deep and personal passion to express themselves creatively.  I want to believe I was born some kind of artist. I’d like to think I’m an artist… but what really constitutes one. I had and still have symptoms in that way. I love creating images and that is the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday(just in case  that I am not already crazy). I don’t photograph subjects, I photograph what I dream and the way the World makes me feel. I like the idea of surrealism and what I want to show is my reality trough some kind of surrealism. Sounds weird, I know, but I’m honest, did not occurred to me something better to say and probably is the only way to explain what I am doing.
I love books and I am emotionally action-packed, something that gives me a lot of ideas, ideas and ideas. But, as someone used to say ” a idea without a plan is just a wish”. So I usually put into practice everything that go through my mind. I hope you will enjoy what you find in my blog, and my artistic work will also inspire you or at least will shake a little bit your emotions. thank you for your visit and feedback.

P.S. : Leave a mark in this world. Have a meaningful life, whatever definition it has for you. Go towards it. The place we are leaving is a beautiful playground, where everything is possible. Yet, we are not here forever. Our life is a short spark in this beautiful little planet that flies with incredible speed to the endless darkness of the unknown universe. So, enjoy your time here with passion. Make it interesting. Make it count!

 

P.S.2 YOU ARE A UNICORN. DESPITE WHAT ANYONE ELSE SAYS. YOU ARE ONE IN 7.4 BILLION, AND THAT IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.

  4. I started to follow you because I would like to understand your expression with your work . That takes time and at the end it will only you who can reveal, That is a nice thought . bart

      1. 🙂 maybe better the shared expression rather than understanding . I addmit . In any case your work is worth it to look and to experience .

      2. Thank you for the belgians , When I travel I do feel sometimes that too. 🙂 feel free to visit my work too , unsalted opinions are welcome , cheers bart

    1. thank you, unfortunately I am not writing so much anymore, but I posy my feelings which is quite the same, they are a few post in the blog with my writings , but if you want I will search for them and give you links.

  5. Thank you for following my blog! Nice to meet you (and yet remain strangers 😉 ). You wrote: “I was born somewhere, and then, unfortunately grew up.” -> I agree. A while ago I wrote a blog about the power of the “why question”. And I think part of growing up for most people is to stop asking “why” all the time, because we “take things as they are”.

    So break free and stop “growing up”!

    Kind regards,
    Tieme

  6. Well Absolutewinter,

    I’ve explored many different photography blogs and hands down yours is one of the finest. I love your eye, the textures are marvelous, some are a bit dark in context but very well understood. The winters you talk about run through my veins, your pictures saturate my soul, I see a longing spirit walking a dusty road amid the mountains. Is it you? You are invited to my cabin (blog) which I believe lies not far from you. Your work would always be welcome on one of it’s walls.

    Another wondering Soul.

      1. I am not in Russia, in this very moment, I am wondering in Europe… I just came from Canary islands and now I am in Romania, (after I have spent one year in Spain, Bilbao) 😛

      1. Just so you know, when you said you where in Romania, I can look on my sidebar where my globe is and see what countries have visited my blog. I could see you………..from here.

  7. your blog is awesome , i totally understand a lot of your art , sensational indeed , you have one hell of an imagination , and if photography does drive you mad some day ……just keep shooting !!!

  8. I came to say I really have been blown away by your writings and images, and, surprise, surprise! I saw that I have been here before, in December 2012, thanking you for subscribing to Art Rat Cafe…But you just subscribed to Art Rat Cafe and I was here also to say thank you for subscribing…Time Warp…Maze Lost…Who are you really???

    1. if you want to know who I am it is enough to read the post above 😛
