alexei Vassiliev

I had a conversation with Lucy the other day about taking the aesthetic of some of the club photography I do out into the street and into portraiture. She has some great ideas about using available flourescent light, grain, blur, colour colour and more colour. I have done some street stuff that has similarities but the photographs from inside the clubs are a bit more successful I think. Here's a few examples.

Anyway, yesterday I came across the work of Alexei Vassiliev on the lens culture blog, who happens to have done exactly the thing we were talking about, more or less.
