Falling in Love with the Moon


Russia-based artist Leonid Tishkov and photographer Boris Bendikov have created a fantastical realm illuminated by moonlight. Their creative endeavor entitled Private Moon chronicles the relationship between a man and his discovered moon. Tishkov calls the romanticized installation a “visual poem, telling the story about a man who found the Moon and stayed with her for the rest of his life.”

This starry-eyed fairy tale was designed by Tishkov and photographed by Bendikov. The series of romantically driven images recount a story of atypically attainable true love. Each time the man comes across the moon, there's a mix of bewilderment, mystification, and love at first sight. There is something magical about the moon's essence that these artists have captured. I absolutely LOVE it!
