GUNAR BINDE: delicate taste and sense of proportion
Some decades ago Latvian’s photographer Gunar Binde managed to persuade soviet ideologists that photos in the genre “Nude” can be a real art and it is worth seeing. Delicate taste and sense of proportion helped him to do this. Today Gunar Binde is in his eight decade. But «the pioneer of soviet erotica» still stands true to the subject chosen once and vigorously continues to improve it. Skilful use of composition and perfect technique of light allows master to create new projects, avoiding banality and platitude which are often peculiar to “Nude” genre photographers. Again and again Gunar Binde invites viewer to enjoy lines and form of human body, seeking new, bizarre combinations, creating exciting and emotional visual story about BEAUTY.
Photo project TANYA is worthy confirmation of this. Master dedicates it to his favorite model and Muse, who has been inspiring him for the last 25 years.
This is the second Gunar Binde’s exhibition in photogallery RACHMANINOV GARDEN. The first meeting with Latvian master’s creativity was here in 2007 and caused a great response of professional photographers, collectors, gallery owners and admirers of photographic art.
