Nikolay Bakharev – Relations ( Russia, 1985-2004 )

Nikolay was raised in an orphanage from the age of four and worked as a mechanic in a metallurgy plant from the age of sixteen, eventually coming to photography when he discovered his talent for creating intimate and casually immodest portraits of complete strangers. Bakharev began his career as a professional photographer working for the Communal Services Factory in Russia, where he received assignments for occasions such as local weddings, funerals, and school classes. In the late seventies he started going to the public beach looking for new subjects to photograph to get some more money. His images of bathers were sold in hiding , since every private initiative, was considered against the sovietic goverment.
