About the artwork
Born in the Ukraine in 1979, Ruslan Lobabov is one of the most influential photographers in Eastern Europe. Early on, he specialised in portraiture and female nudes in black and white. He draws his inspiration from cinema and fashion, producing erotic shots in which the bodies of sensual women are brazenly flaunted under his sharp eye. The models thus represent a certain kind of feminine freedom by disrupting established codes. His images have earned the photographer remarkable collaborations, notably with the magazines Playboy and Lâ€™Officiel and the cosmetics group Lâ€™OrÃ©al. Ruslan Lobanov does not just take photographs for advertising campaigns and also produces limited editions of his personal work in the form of catalogues and calendars. â€œWorksâ€, released in 2014, brings together his best productions from the past ten years.He published â€œNudes in the Cityâ€ in 2015, a project that brought together female subjects from Havana to Moscow. ...
