Ruslan Rakhmatov – photographer from Tashkent who lives and works in Moscow. Ruslan is the author and participant of numerous photo and media projects, including personal photography exhibitions ENIGMA (2018), BLACK IS SHADOW (2015), an exhibition of photographs from the Street Art project, the media project “Crossroads. Street dance ”and many others.
Ruslan Rakhmatov is also a laureate of international awards such as Art Limited Awards 2018, International Photography Awards 2019, Budapest International Foto Awards 2019 and others. In addition, in 2019, the photographer is a member of the jury of the 35AWARDS international photography competition.
Since 2013 Ruslan has been teaching in parallel with creativity. The desire to develop the art of photography, share his experience, help people in love with this art, and master this creative path – all this prompted Ruslan to create a photography school “Ruslan Rakhmatov Photography School”.
The ENIGMA photo project is an incredibly beautiful series of artistic photographs that fascinate and enchant with their naturalness and mystery. These are shots stylized in the Renaissance era, which capture sensual, romantic images of girls, magically catching the eye. Ruslan found his inspiration for the implementation of the project in the work of the German musical group “Enigma”. Translated from the ancient Greek word “enigma” means “riddle”. This fact is very vividly reflected in the works of this series of the photographer.
