Ruslan Lobanov is one of today’s most popular artists in the post Soviet Union space. His black and white, and color, photography have left a strong impact on photography collectors and enthusiasts in both Europe and North America. His works have been exhibited in his home country Ukraine, as well as in Belgium and Germany. His exhibit in Zurich at Gallery INA DEDERER & FRIENDS marks his first show in Switzerland.
Ruslan’s uniqueness comes from the mystery and elaborate elements of female nakedness which blend harmoniously with collectible accessories, handmade costumes and attentively selected locations. Whilst visiting different countries and observing multiple cultures, Ruslan photographed a large mosaic of female models from Havana to Kiev, and from Galle to Moscow. The inimitable aura of each city is reflected in each stunning female’s unique look. A new book supporting the exhibit, Nudes in the City, features many never-before-seen photos from the main project that was created over the last ten years.
The selected works depict Ruslan’s essence of feminine beauty—confidence and strength with space for the viewer’s interpretation. Lobanov mostly works with different analogue cameras and the medium format.
All works are limited edition prints, mostly of 15 copies.
