Classical aesthetics and masculine beauty are the main themes of "Indigo," a photography album published by World-Wide Literature. Its author, the Moscow-based photographer Vsevolod Galkin, is already well-known in Russia as well as abroad. His Internet gallery receives more than 100,000 hits annually.
Vsevolod Galkin's signature style is clean, fresh, and executed with technical perfection. Vulgarity is foreign to him. Indigo is an aesthetic and highly artistic album. The photographer found his own unique form of expression that allows him to compete with the famous masters. His individuality is apparent in his unique view of masculinity: it is both the base beauty of the bodybuilding narcissist, and the finesse of the nude youth on the cover of the album. The trademark of Galkin's models is harmony - both spiritual and physical.
By magnifying the male, reinforcing and strengthening his unique, positive, and creative eroticism, Vsevolod Galkin destroys the taboo of unveiling male sexuality.
The photo album is published in a dustcover. For collectors, ten exclusive, numbered copies will be released, each in a special metal case designed in post-industrial style which corresponds with the philosophy of the photographs.
