The image that they are creating is self-evident, as a revelation, it is real and concrete, and anyone would understand it. The subjects perceived and relate to everyone, in varying degrees. To explain the creative side of proses the most exact world is dreaming. Its commonly believed that the primary function of dreams is to psychologically balance and compensate for what matters and left unsettled during waking hours. In the dream word, the censors of our mind dissipate and the material in our heads becomes fluid and nonlinear. Our past memories, fears and desires all surface symbolically, revealing to us a deeper understanding of ourselves. Metaphorically, this is how Vitaly and Elena came to understand their photographic works. «I see my photographs as visual manifestation of my subconscious mind images that bypass intellectualization to reveal authentic feeling».
Creation is the birth of something, and something cannot come from nothing. When someone creates something: a painting, a poem, a photograph, the creativity comes from an idea, from a feeling, from emotion, or from a combination of ideas, feelings and emotions that are somehow ‘reborn’ from all our experiences and perspectives.
Creativity is the desire to express ourselves. To formulate these expressions, we have to draw from our reservoir of experience, dreams, desires and experimentation and mix together what was, what is, and what could be… I don’t think you can learn it, it is rather something that evolves. Your perception of everything in your life fills up this reservoir.
Some people are drawn to create and express themselves, others are drawn to reflect, to analyze. But in the end, they all could be creative if they had the desire to explore the way in which they are integrated in the world of their experiences. Because creativity is really a rebirth, a true tone we feel for ourselves and for our world. Then our work becomes a real part of who we are. Maybe all this is a question of how deep we are willing to go…
