Aleksandr says:
‘During winter evenings, when my favourite wild flowers are stolen by merciless weather and replaced with snow piles I take photos at home on a light panel. Before buying the flowers I have to visualise the subject, form the idea in my head – I have to understand what I want to see through the lens of my camera. Home shooting is a creative process. An interesting idea, a ‘correct’ composition is a guarantee of success, and in this case my work is bound to be understandable and interesting to my audience. In this photo, for example, I wanted to show that when you look at our world through a microscope you will see countless chaotic particles. And if you try to see a bigger picture, our planet Earth will seem very clear, full of harmony and bright different colours.’
