You photographs are interesting, and quite thought-provoking. However, you are not conforming to the accepted norms of "Leica-ness" usually seen in photographs presented in this Forum so I predict your photography may not get a good reception...


Misha is clearly an excellent photographer with his own style

I think this forum has folks posting with a broad range of styles:  from Hugues to Godfrey to Louis

Misha's somewhat lukewarm reception stems more from his responses than from his photographs, which a number here admire

I have to wonder if he isn't staging some of these, much as did Irakly

I learned from an exhibit of post Soviet Russian photography that this is commonly done in Russian Art photography

I enjoy seeing his work, much more so after visiting his web galleries
