Ni Petrov

Ni Petrov was born in 1986 in Barnaul (Siberia, Russia). Ni Petrov is a photo artist who photographs people - his main technique is cut-out silhouettes on a blank white background. Throughout all of history, the world changes, but the only constant within it is the person. Since 2012 has been living and working in St.Petersburg (Russia).


Ni depicts people in monochrome - this video resembles footage from urban cameras capturing the movement of people. It continues the thought from the crosswalk series - the camera filming people is clearly malfunctioning, in the video, we see the distortion of silhouettes, turning into complete abstraction..
