Discovered on Plenty of Color, this art install/photo project is a star.
Read an interview with Leonid about his “Private Moon.”
This is not just a series – it is a performance of a lifetime! I have traveled Private Moon for ten years and each time the moon reveals more space to me. The moon is a shining point that brings people together from different countries, of different nationalities and cultures. And everyone who gets in its orbit does not forget it ever. It gives fairytale and poetry in our prosy and mercantile world.
Poetry is born in the image. Before placing a Private moon in a place that I like, I look at it for a very long time. Often this is the place that I see as the basis of the poem. In the first pictures you see my country house, the bed on which I sleep and write poetry, I myself as a lonely poet and philosopher – in the hat and cloak of my departed father. The world is beautiful around us, you just illuminate it with the light of poetry! And for me, the light of the moon is the perfect poetry.
With a name like Leonid, I suppose you have no choice but to be cosmically connected to the sky.
