Modern Icons by Danil Rusanov

This series compelled me to write about it.

“Modern Icons”
By Danil Rusanov

What I find particularly compelling about this series is the use of objects rather than people. In most of the series I have seen which  discusses modern society and relates it to religion, they use people, pop icons and celebrity. But this series looks at the average person and which objects and themes become their icons. We also see a sinister side to this, the subjects looked almost possessed by the devil, this is reinforced but the dark shadows and garish light.

A really beautiful series which portrays modern life in a traditional way so that it makes us question our society.
