An Artist's Visual Poem for a Moon

A man and the moon on a shore


“Private Moon is a visual poem, telling a story about a man who found the Moon and stayed with her for the rest of his life” Leonid Tishkov


Here are some photographs that should wake up the romance in your creativity. Photographer Leonid Tishkov travels the world creating these surreal photos with his unlikely companion, the moon. When I look at these photos I feel inspired by their mood. To me there seems to be a permeating loneliness in these compositions but at the same time they are not devoid of warmth and child like wonder.
