The main thing for Anatoly Cherkasov in photography is the desire to get as close as possible to nature, to the world around him and to man. The magic of Cherkasov’s photography is in relation to “form”, in the way with which sensitivity and skill the photographer transforms the image into an exciting plot, filling it with thoughts and feelings.
The photographer turns his camera to objects and space that we would hardly notice for their everyday life. Anatoly Cherkasov uses all the possibilities of platinum, which has a special plasticity and depth of space. He addresses the themes of time, memory and history, destruction and rebirth, epics and poetics, the mystical nature of reality.
