Our friend and extraordinary artist, Anastasia Durasova, had a gig last night at Greenhouse. Recently moved from Moscow, Russia, this talented and renowned body art painter showed off her skills at Made in Russia party, produced by SashasPromotions and Anastasia’s husband, photographer Michael Bernadsky. We had a pleasure of watching her masterpieces created on the bodies of three models, a process taking her and her three assistants 11 hours.
Right before the models hit the stage and rocked the crowd, I grabbed my camera, few portable lighting pieces, and did an express 5-minute photo session with just one of the models. The good news is that tomorrow we are having a dedicated session with Anastasia in one of our studios. There, we will have several hours to explore the beauty of body, art, styling, and photography. This will be our first such a project. Stay tuned. (06/18/09 update: More details on this session are now available here.)
