Eduard Gordeev (Эдуард Гордеев)is a renowned photographer in Russia who resides and works in St. Petersburg. He photographs his favorite city, St. Petersburg, creating stunning cityscape photos with a little acrylic artistry that conveys an air of mystery and dampness. The reflections of city lights and all melting shades create fascinating images that are like pieces of art.
In 2011 he won the annual prize of “Photo Travel” magazine for his photo “Tatarstan”. The same year Eduard became interested in panoramic photography and has become one of its best representatives in Russia.
His cityscapes are a blend of painting and photography that has a slightly retro appeal, bringing the two types of art closer together. The St. Petersburg photographer describes the photographs he takes on the Russian streets as if they were through a wet glass, with long strips of water streaming across the lens, significantly altering the final output.
As Gordeev says, he is inspired by nature and his main goal is to discover beauty in the city. The photographer selects unusual angles for shooting, works on the image with a photo editor to highlight its dominant features.
Many photos are taken from the road, and roadside billboards have become fascinating subjects for Gordeev, site monuments, and ancient characterizations at the heart of the scene. Despite the fact that houses, people, and cities are deformed the end result is more beautiful and distinctive than the reality.
Eduard Gordeev’s works are divided into three main groups: night photography, panoramic landscape shots, and digital art using acrylic colors.
