"I first watched the Ice Hockey World Championship on TV in 1968. Perhaps it was then that the thought of becoming a cameraman flashed through my head. At the age of 19 it all started - my father gave me a "Zenit-TTL" camera, and I bought a "Leningrad-215" movie camera."

Aleksandr Artemev resorts to such metaphorical techniques as slow shutter speed and intentional camera movement during shooting, introducing these techniques into reportage photography and thus expanding its pictorial possibilities. During the work, the author "connects" the Subconscious, the creative potential of which is practically unlimited. There is an opinion that the subconscious mind controls about 98% of our state and behavior. And in terms of neural connections, the impulses that the subconscious sends are transmitted 800 times faster than the impulses transmitted through the consciousness.

"Photography is a gift of foresight, it is an analytical interpretation of things as they happen." Ansel Adams
