How to shoot the invisible? I can shoot almost everything I see with my own eyes. But what is even more interesting is that it is not visible. Isn't it strange that a person perceives 80% of information visually, and at the same time the material part of the Universe is just 5%? This is what scientists say. Another part of the universe is invisible!Igor Gaidai
Since childhood I was interested in the ratio of the visible and the invisible. My passion for photography contributed to this. It was the magical process: the latent image became visible with the film developer.Igor Gaidai
