“Advertising photography is a commonly practiced form of photography. Current canons of advertising, customer luring and customer expectations hold priority over artistic values, thus limiting the freedom of creation, which is an indispensable feature of art. Art cannot be “tailor-made”, especially when its limits are determined by people or determinants from outside its field.
These factors deprive contemporary advertising photography of the spirit of art.
I treat this as a challenge. That is why I like advertising photography the most, and the works I create are my form of rebellion. I try to breathe the spirit of fine arts into each of my creations.
After all, it is not without reason that fine arts are not ugly ;)”.
