The Odessa Fine Art Museum will show a grain photo project


On September the 4th, at 17:30, there is a grand opening of the photo exhibition by Igor Gaidai - "VERUM IN GRANO". This is a joint art project of the photographer and the Foundation for the Protection of Biodiversity of Ukraine which united art and science.

Macro photography of different kind of grains reveal the power and potential of the wild nature.


Igor Gaidai is a photographer, founder and co-owner of the Gaidai Studio company and the Camera gallery. Author of three photobooks: Ukrainians. The Beginning of the Third Millennium, 9 Months + 3 Days, and RAZOM.UA. In 1985, he graduated from the Karpenko-Karyi Kyiv Theater Institute (specialising in cinematography). His graduation work Dragon, created in cooperation with the Greek director Antonis Papadopoulos, received an award at the Molodist Filmfest and was subsequently shown at various international film festivals. He was a part of the group that founded the Photoartists Union of Ukraine.

15 years has worked with leading advertising agencies as a freelance photographer. Since 2002, he stopped work in advertising and started work as the photo artist. He focuses his activity on creation and producing social- oriented photo-projects and promotion of world photography in Ukraine and presentation of the Ukrainian photos - in Europe.


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!

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.
