Classic photographs based on verbs and fables by Gregori Maiofis

gregori-maiofis-intro
Gregori Maiofis is a photographer living and working in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Gregori comes from a creative family (his grandparents were architects and his father, Mikhail Maiofis is a famous book illustrator) and his photography has been shown in galleries and museums all over the world.

Gregori’s work has a classic feel due to his technique and is inspired by verbs and fables. His Tarot series from 2003/2004 stands out for me, I love how Gregori translated the themes of the Tarot cards to photographs. His style and manipulations add a mysterious flavor to the cards, a flavor that fits the Tarot deck perfectly.

You can find more work by Gregori on his website. Enjoy!
