With her art, Vanessa seeks to highlight and capture life’s nuance and that which might otherwise go unseen. The artist currently resides in Florida.

Artist Statement: I use photography to create works of art that bring life and beauty into the lives of others. My photographs aim to capture the flow of life and energy in each scene or still...The universal energy around us...Life's nuance. With every frame, I seek to highlight the nature in which each form lives at that moment. The beauty of the sky and the sea, of God and man’s creations, inspires my soul and give me purpose to point the camera and capture a moment in time.I hope my art gives others pause to reflect on the highest power that gives life.

EKATERINA KUTIKOVA Born in 1989 in Moscow, has called the Mediterranean city of Alicante, Spain, home since 2014. She holds a law degree and pursued additional studies at the universities in Alicante and Valencia. Her journey into photography commenced in 2007, as she assumed roles as an editor and photographer in a local newspaper. This path was further enriched by her family's artistic legacy, notably her grandfather's profession as a documentary filmmaker. Ekaterina draws inspiration from the intricate threads of surrealism, the structured world of geometry and the artistry of cinematic storytelling.

Artist's statement: "As a photographer, I embrace both the timeless medium of black and white photography and the vibrant spectrum of color to craft my art. Within the monochromatic realm and this particular series of photographs, light takes center stage, serving as the principal storyteller. Through the interplay of sharp contrasts and subtle gradients, I weave narratives, distilling fleeting moments into singular frames. In this creative process, shadows emerge as companions to light, transcending their role as mere absences. They possess their own essence, playing the yin to light's yang by defining and enhancing shapes and contours within the frame, further infusing life into the static, introducing depth, mystery, and a touch of the surreal. Meanwhile, geometry stands as a guiding force in my visual compositions, whether through the precise angles of architectural elegance or the graceful curves of natural forms."

YURI SYUGANOV Born in Russia. During his university years in the mid 1980 he started practicing street photography in and around Moscow, Russia. Back then Yuri was using a LOMO lc-a camera and exhibiting images taken with this camera long before the word lomography was invented. Yuri came to the U.S. in 2000 and lived for 17 years in the San Francisco Bay Area where he has exhibited few personal shows at coffee shops in and around San Francisco. Since 2019 he lived in Washington, D.C. and then Memphis, TN. He moved to Miami Beach, FL in 2023. Presently resides in South Tower Flamingo. He participated in the International Photography Festival in Arles, France, and in group shows in San Francisco, New York and Milan.

Artist's statement: Pointing is one of my series studing un-posed gestures and poses happening in real life all the time in front of our eyes, which we usually don't pay any attention to. I find it facinating to show it as a body or work anticipating that next time you see that gesture, you'll smile mentally release the shutter.

ALEXANDER LEFLER yuri@syuganov.com (born 1981) is a documentary and art photographer, currently residing in the Komi Republic, a remote northern region of Russia. For the past 10 years, he has been practiciing commercial and art photography. From 2020 to 2022, he studied at the "Kiev School of Photography" in Kiev, Ukraine, and at the "Photographika" Academy of Documentary Photography in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Artist's statement about the "Colors of the city" series: I shoot abstract cityscapes based on the experience of early 19th century Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian. A hundred years ago, he depicted harmony and poise on his canvases, simplifying his paintings, removing color shades, perspective and curved shapes from them, leaving only straight lines and pure colors. Thus, he showed the viewer the basis from which not only any piece of painting begins, but everything around.

I believe that if everyone understands that beauty and harmony can be found not only in famous artist's paintings, but also in ordinary objects, it will help to see the world around us differently - be it the buildings roofs, an old fence or paint spots on a concrete wall. These are exactly the objects that are the core of my photographs.

Everyday things ceased to be interesting for one reason - we just stopped paying attention to them, we got used to passing by without noticing. But each person can become a little like Pete Mondrian if he looks at the combination of colors and shapes in front of him, seemingly faceless. If you just look around, going out on a seemingly gray and familiar street. And, perhaps, he will understand: beauty sometimes lies in the simplest things that we face every day.



The art show is envisioned as one of many to follow with the participation of internationally acclaimed artists who visited our building, love Miami and South Beach and are glad to help build a more art-oriented environment in the community. More information on PAST EVENTS:
