This Ukrainian that calls himself photographer and retoucher is neat, smooth and ironic. He plays with light, texture and objects’ colour range, getting a new interpretation out of them. All very cool, very profound and already too repeated. The thing is that Favorov achieves all this even working with the most common objects around; he can turn a razor into an item we really really need to have. This is called “having the gift of aesthetics”. Inanimate objects that mix with animated objects creating a postcard that is too close to the dreamworld, feature that is, in fact, the strongest side of Favorov’s work. This hypnotic effect he delivers is not easy to get to; we like Sasha Favorov.
