Roman Noven and Tania Shcheglova, the duo behind Synchrodogs can often be found exploring these mountains by motorbike. Their “Slightly Altered” series offers a fresh perspective on the intimate relationship between human beings and nature, also contemplating its headlong course toward a looming disaster. Through landscapes, dance and performance, they condemn deforestation and call attention to the plight of endangered species. It is an original vision populated by both dreams and nature, a land art project that ventures into nude photography, even if some might perceive their approach as a nose-thumbing rebuke to the Soviet era’s insistence that naked bodies only had their place in the great paintings of an earlier age.
Each book in Louis Vuitton’s Fashion Eye series reveals a country, a region, a city or a destination through the gaze of a fashion photographer. Title after title, a broad compendium of perspectives emerges, one that shifts with the destinations, including urban panoramas and natural landscapes, scenes of local life, and more contemplative work. Fashion Eye gives rise to an unprecedented dialogue between emerging talents, seasoned photographers and fashion photography legends.
