Thanks for sharing. Some of his photos are really captivating.

Love his quote, “If you want to be famous, you must do something more badly than anybody in the entire world.”

In a modern society such as locally, one would have immediately crossed a certain line doing that.

Found that the man is strangely talented... and persistence. Really admired some of his work... thinking that he work with almost nothing.

He is ahead of his time in his art. In fact he is probably 40 years ahead of the Lomography movement.

If you read the story of his life, it is sad. The old Russian communist system did not know how to appreciate his talent and treated his refusal to paint propagandist art as defiance. It considered him a mental case and may have subjected him to electric shocks depicted as medical treatment in the movie - One flew over the cuckoo's nest.
