One part of Mitya Nevsky’s dream seems easy to fulfill. Placing his name alongside those of who he admires so much. So here we go. Mitya Nevsky, Justin Monroe, Annie Leibowitz, Herb Ritz, David Vance, Thomas Synnamon. This probably doesn’t quite realize that pat of Mitya’s dream, but one has to start somewhere, and this place is as good as any other. Mitya Nevsky once to find recognition for his work and it is our job, or better said our privilege, to give him a boost.
Oh how we love our men from Russia. There is something about them we do not find in any other man. It’s not just that they are handsome and well built. We can find that anywhere else. No, it’s something else. Something more primitive that lies hidden in their expression. Or maybe it is the fact that their expression is often so stoical. Yes, almost detached. It is hard to read their faces, to see what’s going on in their mind and it is that what makes them so attractive. We have had the opportunity to present you several photographers from Russia already, with their portfolio’s full of these special men, and today it is Mitya Nevsky’s turn.
Mitya Nevsky is 35 years old and lives and works in Moscow. He has built a rich portfolio with his models, but it is not all he does. Mitya also photographs landscapes and architecture and claims he does that better than his models. Which is a very promising aspect, considering his model photography is already of outstanding quality. Russia is a country with very strong believes and values and we always wonder how difficult it must be for photographers to find models. Especially male models. But Mitya guarantees us that, though more difficult outside the city, in Moscow he has no issue finding what he is looking for. Of course his works is his best advertising. Knowing what Mitya can do with his camera obviously is enough comfort for the Moscovian men to undress without hesitation.
It is hard to believe that Mitya Nesky discovered the pleasures of creating photographic art only 3 years ago. It was then when he received his first camera which opened ways to experience a creative ecstasy unknown to Mitya until that moment. Mitya is a happy man and has been so for those last 3 years. He is living in a world filled with light and bright colors. A world seen from a different angle that has unfolded itself to Mitya through the lens of his camera in all its extraordinary beauty. The photos he shares with us today are showing his ability to subtly convey the true beauty of the male form, emerging not only from steel muscles but also from a glimpse of a playful smile, piercing the daily hustle and bustle of life in the metropolis. Mitya Nevsky’s portraits represent an breath of fresh air of freedom and ease. Mitya’s dream doesn’t seem to be a very complicated one. It definitely is a deserved one to be realized. –BM-
