photography / editorial / art / design featuring dimitri sagatov www.dimitrisagatov.com Photography is my outlet for expressing the way that I see the world around me. My photographs tend to convey the memory of a time and place. Not just as it was, but as I felt and experienced it. e intent of my work is to evoke an emotional resonance within the viewer. I be- lieve that there is an ancient rhythm in the world that ignores everything in our mod- ern lives. It is wild and patient, and natural. It can't be described, only deeply felt on a cellular level. I find constant inspiration in the margins between shadow and light where that eternal rhythm resonates most clearly, and the interplay between these margins is the underlying theme of all of my images. Over the past three years I have shown my work in over 30 juried outdoor art fes- tivals throughout Florida, and had my work displayed at gallery shows in the Wyn- wood Arts District of Miami, as well as Art Palm Beach in West Palm. I am heavily involved in the arts community in Delray Beach, where I currently reside. In addition to being a board member of the Delray Art League, I also teach photography and photoshop at the Old School Square Creative Arts School in downtown Delray . I am constantly expanding the reach of my voice by experimenting with different equipment such as digital infrared, large format film, and anything else that I find in- triguing. It is my hope to continue growing and evolving as an artist, and add a unique voice to the photographic community through my work. Dimitri Sagatov 18 PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE
