Vitali Gelwich

Vitali Gelwich, *1990, is a fashion photographer and artist. He was born in Russia and grew up in Germany, today he lives and works in Berlin. He is self-taught and works on book and art projects in addition to his photographic work. Photographer and artist Gelwich presents intimate images that open up the world of the Russian-born artist, who grew up in a Brandenburg prefabricated housing estate. Somewhere between street culture, high fashion, and post-Soviet aesthetics, the images unfold the artist’s identity. Gelwich has established himself as a sought-after fashion and portrait photographer. He finds beauty in the suburbs, among otherwise often excluded groups or at the margins of society – the human being is always at the center for him. A testimony of our time, but also of the artist’s perception.
