Maxim Emelyanov Interview
Maxim Emelyanov is young expressionist photographer born in Russia and currently taking up residence in Northern Thailand, where he is collaborating on a film project with Maria Kechaeva. His work is research driven and explores societies connection with nature and the ephemeral state of his surrounds. You cannot help but immerse yourself in his photographs, entering a world that should be familiar but seems distant and forbidden. Maxim was kind enough to speak with us about his new project and also gave us an exclusive set of new imagery from his time in Thailand.
Haroshi's work first came to my attention in 2010 when he was commissioned by Nike CEO Mark Parker to use his unique style to create a sculpture of the iconic Nike Dunk. Haroshi makes pop art from pop culture and in particular the skateboard deck, he uses used decks to recreate other objects, the result is impressive to say the least. The concept might sound simple, or even a little contrived, but the result is so well crafted you can't help but become fascinated. I spoke to Haroshi about his art.

Keeping things predominately monochrome with a hint of navy, the palette was inspired by textile artist Sheila Hicks, which serves to toughen the Ohne Titel 'armored' woman for Fall.
