Artem Nadyozhin (1984) was born in Sverdlovsk, Ukraine but raised in Pervomaysk. This small industrial city in Southern Ukraine used to be a large missile center in Ukraine but after the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances in 1994 its fame has faded and the manufacturers have closed. He remembers his childhood among broken down factories and abandoned quarries in which he used to swim. ‘The weather normally was calm and foggy so the landscape always seemed to be blurred. Maybe that’s where my photography style comes from. I do not like to use bright colors or saturation and contrast effects. I tend to monochromatic pictures, muted and subdued colours as if the picture has already faded.’ he states.
His most recent photo series stems from his love of exploring old and abandoned locations.

Ok. Enough quotes. Let's make ourselves an opinion.
the line between the reader and writer has blurred - and so have the distinction among tweet, blog post, facebook, newspaper story, magazine article, book, the line between professionals and amateurs, the boundaries delineating for-profit, public, and non-profit media, the line between old media and new media - practically beyond recognition.
But more than ever we can still crave for latest updates or ever-changing trends. And share it.
A master passion is the love of news.
here, and only now. We produce our blend of newly-shot original interviews, film footage, portraits of artists and talents. We focus most on singularity, significant individual works and exhibitions, provocative ideas, and biographical material. We believe an artist's work should intersect with today’s most relevant issues and concerns.
We want to be there when it happens.
And of course we want to be there first.
and When. The earth we live in is full of visual treasures too magnificent to describe. Often we need a photograph to allow an beautiful landscape to meet our lines of vision - wherever we are.
Sometimes it's a the other end of the world, sometimes just a few miles away.
