These works are one of the first ones that laid the foundation for the “Color tales” project
and probably my very first experience of the staged color photography. I shot film and digital at the same time. I wanted all at once and did not want to choose. My film camera to the moment was Mamiya rb67, solid-made and heavy.
Due to inexperience I made a lot of mistakes with film and had to fix them in Photoshop after having the images scanned. Thus, “Pierrot” series combine technology of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Another remarkable detail that the model in the photo, Ruth, turned out to be my complete coeval.
The head picture is one of the most significant for me and made me feel a creative photographer for the first time.
