Igor ChekachkovAbove (1 of 24) from Daily Lives series (2013)

There’s no sidestepping comparisons with Florian Beaudenon’s Instant Life.

Chekachov uses light in interesting ways but his composition chops lack Beaudenon’s rigor.

Yet, this image does two things Instant Life doesn’t: it demonstrates a patient reverence for the electric current of sensuality underlying bodily instantiation and an openness to being alone, together in the sometimes mundane, sometimes tempestuous sea of being.
