ANATOLY RUDAKOV was born 1951 in Russia.

Russian fine art multimedia artist Anatoly Rudakov was previously known as a highly successful cameraman, who shot documentaries and news reports worldwide for over 30 years. After he graduated as a documentary cameraman from the illustrous Moscow Film School VGIK, he worked for the Geneva and London offfices of the Soviet Television. His employers were ZDF, CBS, CNN, BBC and Discovery Channel. In 2008 Rudakov moved to Munich, Germany and started following his life-long passion for fine art photography with a focus on nature, people and urban spaces.

His work has been exhibited at various venues around Germany, Luxembourg, France, Hungary, USA and South Korea.

 

"As a cameraman, Anatoly Rudakov captured actual moments on film. Since he is a multimedia artist, he works in a similar manner. His impressions of cities and landscapes are presented in an atmosphere that seems to vibrate. However it is not the kind of vibration, that occurs from an outside force, but rather it is a faint trembling, that seems to emerge from the objects themselves. In reality, it is the artist himself who moves slightly. Doing this he obtains the opposite of the object behind photography: to create a precise image. Using the technique of Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) Rudakov transfers his own movements to the motifs he is taking pictures of. These take on the vibrations and seem as if they had inspired with life." (Dr. Barbara Rollmann-Borretty)


ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Having been a cameraman for three decades I am still fascinated with moving pictures. A photo camera is for me another tool to capture the changing world.

The movies of Sergey Urusevsky, the father of subjective camera in the world cinematography (the Golden Palm-winning movie The Cranes are Flying and others) have long fascinated me. The emotional impact of pictures through the moving and living camera is overwhelming. While working with the photo camera I am also trying to translate the feelings into the picture and photographs into moving pictures.

My multi- image dynamic video shows are the result of my artistic intention. The generic movement in my images is underlined by the transition effect, the way I combine one image with the next one. The viewer witnesses the genesis of a new image. 60 photographs are combined trough unique „floating“ effect in a particular sequence to form a 60 minute in 4k video..
