Amazing Nature in the Photographs by a Ukrainian Artist Valerii Tkachenko
We are living in a cramped, stuffy and monotonous urban anthill. Here everything is subject to relentless, accelerating pace of monotonous daily life. Thus, we begin to lose something important, connecting us with nature. And we forget how much inspiration and vitality it can give us…
Most of us are caught up by the circumstances and the eternal time pressure. We can see fantastic natural views so rarely! We begin to lose the value and understanding of our being as a part of nature, our involvement in the environment of our beautiful planet. And yet, as the classic said, if God created all these beauties, isn’t it all for people who should admire them?
Whatever it is, the modern pace of life does not allow us to draw inspiration and peace from the beauty of nature. We have no time to sit in the evening express, get out of the train on some small station and bring our thoughts and emotions in order staying in the woods for some time. We do not have time to even imagine such an adventure! And the less time we spend alone with nature, the more bland and tasteless life becomes, the less its voice resonates in our hearts. We are caught up in kind of modern urban samsara…
Inspiring photos will change it!
Of course, a man has built an anthill for himself, and it is ready to fall on its builder’s head. However, unlike the ant, people figured out how to keep the perfect safe forever and how to draw inspiration from memories of the most incredible and breathtaking scenery that will never fade.
People invented the photography at the beginning of the XIX century, but now it has reached the highest point of its development! Beautiful scenery, imprinted on the photographic paper, is the perfect proof of it! A skilled Ukrainian photographer Valerii Tkachenko really does perfect photos!
Whether it is a clear water surface of a beautiful Slovenian lake of Bled or interlacing of idyllic Tuscan hills, lost in a haze of light – in both cases, Valerii Tkachenko presented a range of unique experiences that a person sitting in the square and heartless office box is not able to feel himself.
But what happens if such glyphs of memory will appear in that box? What would people, clamped by the city from all sides, experience looking at the photos taken by Valeriy Tkachenko? They would feel a sense of freedom. Not physical freedom, of course, but a much higher freedom, the freedom of spirit and imagination! Just free your mind; therefore, we are able to come up with something new, even more incredible, than something that nature could prompt us. And, perhaps, looking at these detailed landscapes, we shall subconsciously find even more perfect way to keep our memories and share them with people.
Psychology tells us that our environment, everything what we see every day, gives a very serious impact on the working capacity and creative thinking. And the most recreative effect on the human psyche is performed by open landscapes: two photographs taken by Valeriy Tkachenko undoubtedly confirm this – they comprise all the fullness of space! It is achieved not only by the great skills of the photographer, but with the unique printing technology as well: the image is mounted into an aluminum base, which is then covered with a matte or glossy acrylic glass.
The spectator, who has these photographs, probably will feel the presence effect and the desire to hold a look at these pictures a little longer. It takes only a few minutes to dive into the magical world of these photos, and you will feel great relief from the burden of modern consant urban pressure. Perhaps in these landscapes, you can find a non-standard solution that will bring your business to the top? Who knows, maybe this is your door to a wonderland…
These photographs were exhibited in New York Agora Gallery, they are signed, numbered and certificated. There are only eleven of them, and just a small amount once again confirms that real art is unique.
