CLOSE UP AND PRIVATE is an on-going project by artist Sergei Sviatchenko which looks to
capture the spirit of modern style, as seen through the subtle shades of the individual.
Through these details a complex discourse between clothing, fashion and image takes form,
offering new perspectives on contemporary fashion and identity.

CLOSE UP AND PRIVATE is curated by artist Sergei Sviatchenko [DK] and designer and
art director Nello Russo [IT] and is dedicated to the visual language of style – celebrating
classic details and contemporary looks through unique photographic documentary.
