Young Russian artist Pavel Platonov literally faced many obstacles before he started to delight us not only with his dark and intense photography, but also with his large installations made from used mirror, metal and other sharp and raw materials. His art is wonderful because it creates such an exciting clash between the real and the unreal, the future and the past by still capturing the distinct Eastern European-style that you can see in the origin of his work.
