The 7th Magazine had the pleasure to cover the Capital Club Dubai Anniversary, where famed photographer Vadik Zibrov’s artistic portraiture has been prominently displayed. The members-only club in the Dubai International Financial Center previewed Vadik’s stunning photography accompanied by a limited edition book series. Below is Vadik Zibrov’s exclusive interview detailing it all –
As a photographer, your work is particularly stunning when in Black & White, in Color, as well a mix of both. What emotions do you transcribe through these variations?
I like both the color and the black version of the photo. Each of the options should convey the depth of the moment that I captured on the camera.
As an artist, what do you seek when location scouting for your photo-shoots?
Location should complement the mood and images of the model, which we have chosen with clothing and accessories. The scenes need to be shot so that the frame turns out to be full, rather than steep half.
What subject do you want the most focus on (besides color) in your photographic shots?
I try to shoot the inner depth of a person at that moment, and I focus solely on the character of the character, the hero I shoot.
How does it feel to have your work displayed in the exclusive members-only Capital Club Dubai?
I am infinitely pleased, first of all, that my dream came true and the photo exhibition took place! My manager Matt Logan is a magician and a master of his craft, and I am very pleased that the work hangs in the Capital Club of Dubai, as it really is a top-level club!
What do you hope to accomplish at your next destination with your artistry?
In the following projects, I will make even more diverse and versatile images of models, so that they feel like heroes of film stories and to blow my mind to my viewers!
Where do you see your artistic work in the near future?
I would very much like that the series of exhibitions continue in the future, and the willow with my manager is working in this direction. The next exhibitions we plan to hold in London and New York.
Do you have any interest in showcasing in the Caribbean?
Yes, it seems to me it would be interesting to make an exhibition in the Caribbean, because I think there is no such thing and it will be something new for the culture of the pool itself, and also for connoisseurs of the art of photography.
