This author has the technical ability to transcend photography as technique and present his ideas as pure works of art. I strongly suggest going through his posted collection and become amazed.
There are many people I aim to emulate and am impressed by. For most of them I can conceive (if not truly hope) to someday achieve an occasional output level that is similar to theirs. A lucky shot here, a good setup there... However, Belov's works hit me on a visceral level, like real art should. There is no gimmick here, no pretense, just a direct connection from artist to viewer. Bravo.
