The Art and ego are mutually destructive forces.
I'm Evgeny Silverman and I do Fine Photography. Human experiences are not linear and do not come in sets or series. The same goes for my photography. Within a very short period of time human attention can cover a wide spectrum of events and objects, which makes it unnatural for an artist to limit oneself to any particular number of themes and styles — and I'm not planning on limiting myself either. My works don't have names. I don't want to trick the beholder into perceiving my work in any particular way, having one's own associations and meanings pushed aside just because "I said so". I firmly believe that if works have "universal triggers" built into them, no title will make them better. Conversely, if works are just plain crap, no fancy names will make them more meaningful for anyone. But my taste is not the only rule by which I judge the "authenticity' of what I am doing, and naturally my own ego and self expression are not the ultimate reasons why my works are what they are and will be. The artist is just a middle man in the chain of expressions and impressions. That said, how talented an artist is at being able to take one's own impressions and translate them into a "universal language" that is naturally understood by every human being, depends on everything. And this ability, in general, is in my view — and, I'd argue, history's — one of two components we humans call talent. For me, photography is just one of many ways to manifest my talents and have the chance to speak that "universal language" to you, to him, to her and to them.
