St Basilís Cathedral, Moscow. Russia.
This easily distinguishable landmark was originally built in 1655 by Ivan The Terrible to mark the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan. At the time, it was the tallest building in Moscow. Originally named Trinity Church, it was later renamed once the tenth church was constructed in 1588 over the grave of St Basil.
The buildings has been crafted around a bonfire flame, burning up to the skies. St Basilís Cathedral is often mistaken for the Kremlin, being in close proximity to it within Red Square. It was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1990.
My work often takes two avenues of theme: a darker, sometimes scary world of unseen nightmares, and a nostalgic playground of warm memories, much safer and happier than the former.
I have always looked further than traditional methods of photography. Digital manipulation has allowed me to communicate and share my view of the world. I have a need to lace my work with elements of obscure visions and deliver a piece the viewer can connect with on multiple levels.
Andrew Paranavitana is an independent photographic artist. His driving passion for photography began in 1994. Andrewís vision today is to capture the world as we know it, and present it in a way that we may not.
