Still life photo art by Svoboda
For Russian amateur photographer Elena Andreeva (Svoboda) photography has become her lifestyle. She began photographing in 2006 quite by accident, when her friend, a designer, told her about a short course on photography. At first, Elena engaged in genre photographs obtaining emotions. Then, not immediately, she came to portraits, animals, landscapes and, of course, still lifes. Talented photographers, such as Alla Semenova (PhotoSova), Julia Medvedev, Andrei Glamozdov (Gvozdj) have influenced Elena.

Anatoly Vostochny Flower art kaleidoscope
A talented and creative photographer and poet, Anatoly Vostochny lives in Odessa. Gallery of his photographs consists of more than 10 thousand pictures on different themes. In particular, portraits, landscapes, still lifes, animals, children, genre, travel, black – white, and retro …
From the extensive collection of photographs I have chosen a series, which I could title “Flower Kaleidoscope”. They are bright positive pictures, creatively processed in Photoshop. Born in the USSR, Anatoly lives and works in Odessa, and feels a bit nostalgic about his Soviet past. According to Vostochny, Soviet Union – is his homeland, his family, and his home. “I come from Mariupol. And now I have there children, grandchildren and many relatives: only siblings cousins – 44 of them. So it is really my city …. Well and Donbass … Also, I lived in Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, St. Petersburg, Rostov-on-Don, Vorkuta … How many good things were in the USSR”.
Australian photographer and food artist Carl Warner, who lives and works in London, makes an impression on others as a man not of this world. And really, what would you think about a man who, being in the supermarket, picks up and carefully examines vegetables, bread, sausages? The photographer is a master of the genre known as Foodscape, ie landscapes of food. In his paintings, the mountains are made of bread, trees – a broccoli, waves – cabbage leaves, and the role of stones take baked potatoes. These wonderful pictures are made of food: bread, meat, chocolate, garlic, potatoes, asparagus. Carl Warner has had over 25 years of experience in advertising photography and became interested in the genre Foodcapes about 10 years ago. Through these works Carl Warner has been now known throughout the world. Advertisers are dreaming to get his pictures to make the packaging of their products and their advertising.
