Very little is known about Dima Smelyantsev online. He was originally born in Russia, in 1962, but came to New York in 1989, and always lived there. In the first decade of the 20th century, he died at a relatively young age – a massive heart attack. The universe has truly lost a beacon of ingenuity and immense talent.
According to his family and friends, Dima was an amazing, incredible and genius human being, a brilliant, out of this world person, always a very unique man - – humanitarian, artist, engineer, and workaholic, with a tremendous sense of humour.
The quality of work is remarkably high, containing vulnerable, fetishistic black-and-white portraits of women. It’s a vast mix of experiments, series, and explorations of themes we’re all familiar with only with a great attention to detail, shape, and shadow, and a solid use of lighting and B&W/sepia. Some of his best images are so simple in the set up that you easily get lost in details like the eyes, shadows on skin, textures of a face…
He published only one book, in 2002, Untressed (Lunette Press, 2002, ISBN: 9780971773806). His life and his personality deserves this book, written by someone as original and genuine like he was. This photograph is printed after the edition of his book.
