Monday’s Inspiration – Alexey Titarenko

Alexey Titarenko is a Russian photographer and artist who has devoted his life’s work to depicting the atmosphere and inhabitants of his city.

He draws his inspiration from the music and literature he loved since childhood and his long walks through the city.

The past decade, Titarenko has turned his lens on New York. In his work, he brings his longstanding concerns with time and history to bear on a relatively young city known for its relentless headlong pace.

Titarenko has developed a unique metaphorical style to his photography. By translating time into a purely photographic language, he exposes the frailty of human existence and reveal those precious moments in life that move our soul.

His popular series called “City of Shadows”, can be seen below.
