"81"


February 18, 2023

In mid-February 2023, Kharkiv hosted a unique concert by the talented Ukrainian violinist Orest Smovzh - Fragments-Condensations. Within an hour, he performed 81 excerpts of contemporary classical music from the last 60 years.

Right before the concert, Orest and the organizer of the event, Oleksiy Mykhaylov, jokingly shared with me the idea of shooting a report with 81 photos, each having a new, unique perspective, not similar to the previous one. I really liked the idea and took the photo report exactly as they suggested.

The next day after shooting, I had an idea how to complete this project. In the graphic editor, I superimposed all the photos one on top of the other, thus creating a multi-exposure of 81 photos. The result of the work was presented on May 7, 2023 at the opening of the exhibition "Kharkiv|Culture|War" in Kharkiv in the form of a photo with a width of 81 cm. After looking at the photos carefully in their original size, you can see almost all the details from that concert.
