Kirill Golovchenko

All images ©Kirill Golovchenko

While I thoroughly enjoyed rummaging through these images Kirill Golovchenko sent me I still couldn´t help but feeling it was a bit of a mixed bag. I won´t go as far as to say a project is only as a strong as its weakest image or anything like that but it is well worth reminding ourselves of the importance of editing work. The presentation must resolve into a series of solid images that demonstrate a consistency in idea and/or pictorial form otherwise it is not going to cut it. The thing is with 7km - Field of Miracles is that the great images are really great but the bad ones, well, they just lower the overall standard. Lesson: Edit people then edit some more. Don´t be afraid to be ruthless.
