Capture of the Day: Petr Barabaka

Instagram. That’s where I came to know the work of Moscow-based street and skate culture photographer & filmmaker Petr Barabaka.

What I love about being a writer is that my admiration for work or a place or a moment doesn’t have to stop there. I can keep asking questions.

It turns out that Petr is something of a philosopher as well. He’s bold. He’s humble. He’s an amazing artist. He said this about photography and his work:

“The real power of images is conveying emotion. I want people looking at my photographs to feel something, whether it be loneliness, joy, disaffection or even disgust. But most importantly, not indifference.”

I admire people who have something to say. I wrote about him for LensCulture here: https://www.lensculture.com/articles/petr-barabaka-understanding-space-photography-through-a-skater-s-eyes
