Sasha Chaika is a russian filmmaker and photographer from St. Petersburg. I think the group of young new emerging Russian photographers is very promising, their style is refreshing in a way and sometimes totally more eye-opening then west-european photography. In an interview with Issues magazine Chaika told Issues that: ‘I believe that art and fashion must be actual. I live in Russia now and I want to talk about what is around me today. As a person interested in the fashion industry and the visual arts, I want to find this identity, a kind of “chip” in contemporary Russian culture, this is my artistic plan for the future.’ Here’s my pick of his work!
