designed by Jonas Herfurth

Igor Elukov seeks to avoid anthropocentric views in his work. He cannot put his relationship with the northern elements in words. It would be impossible, he says, much like sharing one’s own death with someone else. That is why he
photographs it. Elukov is as interested in the life of crows, wind or water as he is in human life. For Elukov, people are merely part of the landscape. And, he emphasizes: “Not the most interesting part of it. I think if you leave the anthropocentric, you begin to comprehend more interesting things. The world of Platon’s ideas.”
