OTHER-WORLDLY

We've just spent half an hour lost in the photographic world of Alexey Titarenko. Even though his pictures depict familiar scenes – the commute, a busy street, a vendor selling his wares – the way they're shot makes them ghostly and other-worldly.

When he shoots, he plays with time to distort the final result. A crowd of workers becomes a hazy cloud; a lone figure seems to be transient – a departed soul. Something about his work speaks volumes about the anonymity of a city and the quiet sadness of its inhabitants. We love the wistful, wintry light he exploits and the vague lines his pictures use. If ever there were images made for autumn daydream, these are them!
