Moscow born physician turned avant-garde artist leonid tishkov has been travelling around the world with his mobile art installation
'private moon' - telling the story of 'a man who met the moon and stayed with her forever', says tishkov. the project captures a series
of stylized and sentimental photographs of himself with a large artificial illuminated crescent moon, which are taken at various locations
across china, new zealand, taiwan, the arctic, and france.
'the moon is a shining point that brings people together from different countries, of different nationalities and cultures - and everyone who gets in its orbit does not forget it ever. it gives fairytale and poetry in our prosy and mercantile world.'
