“I am taking pictures on the phone. It’s compact, artistic and quick,” says Pavel Nemtin. Having started shooting with a professional Canon, the photographer now feels free to take pictures without any additional preparation and at every opportune moment.
Pavel’s photos are now on display as part of a huge retrospective exhibition - ‘Far Focus. Photographers of Vladivostok’ at the local Zarya Center for Contemporary Art.
Curator Anna Petrova says that it’s much more complicated to take a good shot with a phone, finding your own palette and angle. But Pavel manages that - as well as running several Instagram accounts, each with its own distinct photographic style. His main focus has always been on fragments and details.
