Mikhail Maslennikov began traveling in the Russian North in 2002. The main areas are single expeditions to the places difficult of access, visiting and co-operation with cenobites of active monasteries, sketes, with keepers of ancient temples, pogosts, studying the way of life of modern hermits, anchorites, real intercourse and contacts with backwoodsmen. Since the middle of 2005 Mikhail goes in for field reportage photography and begins thinking seriously about the photographic process as a way of the particular conveyance of author ideas in a missionary vein. At present Mikhail Maslennikov continues his work on private and public projects in documentary photography, individual and group expeditions according to a given subject, collection of materials, visual ethnograph.

Путешествовать по Русскому Северу начал в 2002 году. Основное направление одиночные экспедиции в труднодоступные места, посещение и соработничество с насельниками действующих монастырей, скитов, смотрителями древних храмов, погостов, изучение уклада жизни современных отшельников, пустынников, живое общение и контакт с жителями глубинки. C середины 2005 года начал снимать полевые репортажи и всерьез задумался о фотографическом процессе как образе особой передачи авторской мысли в миссионерском ключе. Ныне продолжает работать над частными и общественными проектами в области фотодокументалистики. Индивидуальные и групповые экспедиции по заданной теме. Сбор материала. Визуальная этнография.

Except for a brief period in the late 1980's when I spent time there, my "memories" of the land of my ancestors is all seen from my late Mama's words....misha brings all of her words to life in his photographs, they are a precious gift. Thank you, Misha.

Sto qui a guardare la sua serie di immagini e rimango incollato allo schermo, attratto da colori e grigi di una fotografia antica e ormai introvabile. Le sfumature che riproducono temperature e atmosfere che credevo confinate soltanto nei film di Bergman e che ora ritrovo nei volti dei personaggi e nelle ombre delle fo… Read more

Sto qui a guardare la sua serie di immagini e rimango incollato allo schermo, attratto da colori e grigi di una fotografia antica e ormai introvabile. Le sfumature che riproducono temperature e atmosfere che credevo confinate soltanto nei film di Bergman e che ora ritrovo nei volti dei personaggi e nelle ombre delle foto di misha. Sono affascinato dalla sua tecnica e dai suoi tagli drammatici delle scene... forse la mia è soltanto sana invidia!

The vast Russian lands, the deep Russian thought, the God admiring soul, the prayer rising from the heart to the mind.. that is how I see Russia. Misha's photostream is the imprint of this vision. Moreover, he is a master of light and composition- professional quality there, no doubt about it. I warmly recommend his stunningly spiritual work! Свако добро!!! Tanjica
