SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER (Slava Mogutin)

Ahí van algunas de las imágenes de la última serie de Slava Mogutin, SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER, que se expone actualmente en la AS IF Gallery de Harlem, Nueva York. Se trata de una serie de retratos íntimos en formato medio realizada durante el verano de 2010, y donde sus amigos y su novio aparecen en espacios naturales de New York y Colorado. Cuerpo, naturaleza y luz se convierten en los protagonistas absolutos de estas fotografías.

"In Slava Mogutin's Suddenly Last Summer, 25 photographic images of male subjects are set in traces of blurred summer color. They are taken with a Holga camera, whose plastic lens delivers the type of experimental accidents for which Jack Smith and Stan Brakhage strove. The resulting light-leaks and double-exposures allow Mogutin a new impressionist vision where a rich and refracted spectrum is layered into the penetrating light of day.

These images are not erotic per se but emotional – an expression of love's natural freedom as opposed to repression's unnatural grip. In perfect contrast to Sebastian's horrifying noonday martyrdom in Williams' Suddenly, Last Summer, Mogutin's subjects live and perform in the open, in brilliant air, in full color and natural light.

Slava Mogutin's luminous pictures celebrate a polychrome Eden that has actually, largely arrived."
