Peasant Galitsin's Angels

Grigori Galitsin if not the best, he is one of the best art photographers of the world! His sense of art, of beauty, are breathtaking, yet his life has not always been the wonderful world of high class art photography his eyes and artistic sense perceive, and that he so skilfully preserves and transmits through is camera. Often misunderstood, persecuted, envied by many that are nothing nor can ever be and try to hide their mediocrity by proclaiming Grigori Galitsin for what he is not, Grigori lives on head up “crossing the valley of the shadow of death” of life “fearing no evil” as he was born with a natural gift, his art sense and skill that he developed and shares with the world in a simple and discrete manner such as is his way of living life, not looking for the ephemeral spot lights of fame, Grigori simply lives his life in a quiet farm with his wife Irina and children were they grow vegetables and have some farm animals of which a very funny curly hair pig … well this idyllic “heaven” is in fact hard life and if you doubt that, then try to grow your own vegetables and grow your own chickens, pigs etc… fish for food in the ice … and then you will know that although healthy it is hard work and the majority of you will continue to go to the supermarket were all is there like for magic, the environment is perfectly conditioned and they even put music to entice and make you feel unique (and buy more of what you need but mostly what you do not need) so that you feel “very happy” and thankful for being a member of this Brave New World so well portrayed and previewed by Aldous Huxley. Grigori and Irina’s lives are not easy. To be famous is not their goal, to live, let live, and be well, loved, respected and cared for is what they deserve and strive for. Well many of you probably think and strive for that as well but think that being famous would suffice to compensate and live happy, well no! and bellow Grigori shares with us very sad and hard moments of his life for which no fame, money, or whatever can compensate or solve.

“Galitsin’s Angels: From Russia with Love”, by Grigori Galitsin, ISBN: 3-934020-34-8 (2005) Edition Reuss, Munich, Germany. HC 144 pgs., Foreword 6 pgs., 126 color plates, 11.25″ x 8.25″

The book’s ample size, paper quality, binding & color photographs pay tribute to this author. The artist-photographer Grigori Galitsin’s portraitures of adolescent girls has termed his subjects “angels” and with good reason. His art-work, long banned in Russia until post-modern times, but just recently again repressed as an acceptable artform, is considered to be Galitsin’s finest contribution: offering a uniqe romatic vision of the feminine and innocence.

Unlike much of present day erotic photography that features tattoos, piercing, etc., these inveiglements are notably absent – his models are mostly or seemingly unposed, often with indifferent affectation to the camera, and naked or scantily clad in outdoor surroundings. Liza, of Volgograd Russia, is shown in the kitchen ready to serve a bowl of chili, has exceptional allure as a model and was cited elsewhere as an University of Law student, accomplished pianist, and trained in dance & theatre.

Beautiful, gently sensual photographs of young female nudes. One has to like this idiom. Galitsin’s Angels are all teens or very young women. All are clean shaven, or nearly so (except that all have natural scalp hair that is kept in a very simple but elegant style.) Every other type of beauty is just not represented. I think that is OK for a single book. The poses and props follow a style I am not familiar with. It has a sort of romantic fantasy effect – idealized but actually understated, not exaggerated..The models are remarkably pretty and very sensual. The photographs are of the highest quality. If you enjoy this approach to feminine beauty, then Galitsin’s work is hard to top.

Galitisin’s Angels is the first in a series of photo galleries that Mr Galitsin published.He is one of the great photographers of our era,and his spcialty is very young girls,trying to capture the very first awakening of sensuality. His wife,Irina Galitsinya, who models under the name Valentina, is a very slender model with brown hair, who is nearly blind,as can be noticed from her unfocused gaze and is a somewhat older professional model who appears on the cover of the book embracing a very young model named Julia in the middle of the Russian steppe.She also appears in a number of other shots, usually with a younger model to help, but the two center pages are Irina on her own in the center of a rockfall,showing she is still a great model.
The younger models, inexperienced but expertly coached by Mr and Mrs Galitsin,deliver performances of incredible beauty,grace, and very often awakening innocence.I would recommend this book very highly to anyone interested in glamor, or pure art, photography.

5.0 out of 5 starsTribute to youthful beauty
May 8, 2008
This collection captures the earliest years of his models’ adulthood – if it is infact adulthood. Each model has come into her adult figure, but not yet lost all of a girl’s softness of face. That moment in a woman’s life has a unique kind of beauty, not wholly distant from childhood’s innocence.

These are young adults, though, with adult figures and very adult potential. Things like un-fuzzy grooming reinforce their youth at the same time that curvy figures and genital details emphasize their maturity and mature appeal. Many shots feature lingerie while others show models in plain white undies, another dichotomy that points out the dual character of these models’ age group. Yet others show the model and her horse (an archetypal enthusiasm of girls), or simple friendship between girls. Other photos clearly imply that the models share, or wonder about sharing friendship of a more grown-up sort.

The models are undeniably pretty, even if they tend to a sameness of age, coloring, feature, and figure. A slight edge of the forbidden sharpens a viewer’s attention, and could well make some people uncomfortable. Well, that ambiguity is real enough, both for young women finding themselves and for the people that encounter them. Galitsin has captured it precisely.
