For a few moments you slip into a different role, when you dedicate yourself to art, your limits blur and you can surpass yourself and discover a new world. Model Valeria Kalabina and photographer Alexander Tarazo mutually enrich each other in their latest photo session, that took place in a beautifully decorated appartment in NYC.
“Find what you love and let it kill you”. – Bukowski
“This writing, born on a subway train, was intended to be a description of an editorial but has become a thank-you letter.
Valeria Kalabina is a photographer based in New York, for more than 7 years. From my first day in the Big Apple, she was my guide, friend, and inspiration. She not only helped me to discover the city but also to discover myself and a new way of seeing art.
Art is nothing more than everything around us. We believe we own it, that it belongs to us, but in the end, we own nothing.
Art is everywhere, the morning espresso when the sunlight shyly kisses the window pane, the nostalgic sound of the rain, the smell of paper from a drama novel, the texture of goosebumped skin, the radiance in a tear of happiness, the catharsis of writing and the pain that exists in the act of love.
As a whole, we are just a part. Loose thoughts dragged by the wind of chance.
Art, the city, and I would not be the same without you, thank you.
Brooklyn, NYC.” Alexander Tarazo
