Denis Ignatov and the icons of the 21st. Century
For Centuries, Russian icon painters have infused religious imagery with an almost supernatural presence. This approach elevates their work beyond mere homage. Following in the footsteps of his ancestors, Russian photographer Denis Ignatov has evolved this classical approach into his own distinctive style.He transfers this almighty aura onto modern icons such as streetwise rappers and beautiful princesses. Ignatov's images are equally as powerful even if they end up not in churches, but in magazines.
