Stilyagi - who are they?

Stilyagi is a sovetic young subculture that appeared at the end of 1940 s and lasted untill the beginning of 1960 s. The icon of lifestyle was an american way of life for them, which was at these days quite dangerous. They had an enormouus interest in Western music and dances. They had some kind of protest against the stereotypes of behaviour and triviality in clothes, preferences in music and lifestyle.

Please, more good photographers in Russia!

During the last 7 years the fotos of Egor Zaika had been published in many magazines, such as, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Icons, InStyle, Citizen K, Tattler.
When he came from advertising into fashion magazine he was already awared how to make a product cute and modern. But he tried to follow two genres: fashion photo and portraits.
His last exhibition ¨Remeslo¨ where he selected his best 32 fotos. He gathered all famous and important personalities nowadayds in Russia: from sportmen to politicians in these photos.
The question is: why russian models have such great succes in the world of fashion and photographers really suck?
