INNOCENCE by Alexey Moskvin

INNOCENCE by Alexey Moskvin

Alexey had already embarked on his Childhood project before we met. However, he was advertising for people to be photographed with their collections and came down to our home and took some wonderful, clear and pure portraits of me and also my small collection of autographs. 

We later worked together at a studio in Stratford, East London where this picture was taken.

A talented and motivated young photographer, originally from St.-Petersburg, Russia, Alexey is now living and working in London. He studied at the London College of Communication before moving on to his own projects and commissions, working with both moving and still images. Alexey’s work has been shown in a number of exhibitions and has been published both in the UK and abroad, most recently in Istanbul.

“When we mourn the passing of childhood, we are really mourning our own passing, the inevitable end of all lives in death. We fend off death’s terrors, snapshot by snapshot, pretending to save the moment, halt time, preserve chidhood intact” Anne Higonnet
