As part of the photo series "Permer frost" I portrayed ice swimmers in my hometown of Perm/Russia. In winter, the temperature in Perm drops to -30 ° C. Ice swimming is an old tradition in Russia. It is a kind of religion, belief in the purification of the soul and healing of the body through icy water. When portraying the ice swimmers I noticed the equality between the ice swimmers and the surrounding cityscapes. The landscapes that have the hardness, coolness and peculiar character. They represents a metaphor for the person portrayed. One asks the question. What shapes what? Are humans the creators or are they the result of the surrounding "world“.
