We live in a world where everything is marked by our collective presence; human signs are everywhere. In Antarctica, you can experience landscape as an absolute other land: strange climate, colors, light, smells, air, sound, and sight. What is perceived as different in landscape, forces our models of vision and this is directly connected with artistic research – which also seeks to force boundaries in search of new visions.
My Antarctic experience, led to my shift from digital to film camera. The horizon was so huge, and every aspect of the visible was so intense in specter, that only film could reach such a multitude of tones. Thanks to the Antarctic, I became aware that the medium is not just a technical question, but also an artistic one. The medium we use is the way we see.
He is a photographer and a writer. Revazov has been engaged with photography since his third year of elementary school. During the past few years he has been shooting mainly on special infrared films. In this way, Revazov tries to show an invisible world through a light that the naked human eye is unable to see.
He shoots on large-format cameras - negatives size is up to
11×14 inches - which gives him the possibility to achieve extremely high resolution images. Revazov’s artistic task is to help viewers access a different, parallel reality. It can be wonderful and conflictual at the same time. He uses two different methods: classical silver bromide printing and the almost forgotten platinum contact printing which was common in the late 19th century. Revazov’s works are present in museums and private collections all around the world. Since 2013, he lives and works predominantly in Venice.
