Symmetry cannot be abstract, or can it. . . .

And now the time has come for me to upload my recent symmetry and constructivism images created over last two weeks. Only recent research into Russian photographers like Alexander Rodchenko and constructivism artists like Liubov Popova created a very professional approach to my abstract symmetry imagery. It is quiet contradicting statement; “abstract imagery” because something that is abstract cannot be symmetrical. However in my opinion it can be symmetrical abstract. Now I am presenting the whole new gallery with more intense and more involving images. Please visit my SYMMETRY gallery just on the top of the menu bar and check out my full slideshow available for you.

19/11/2016 – Welly goes RAVING by; Sergej Komkov

Welllington Club  or Welly ! Fantastic place for a good drink and dance ! If you are young student looking for a good night out look no further. Photographs above were taken on “Welly goes RAVING” night on the 19th of November. Party lovers started queuing outside of Welly long time before opening, its 22:30 that is the opening time and by 23:30 staff had to turn people away – there was that many people inside ! RAVE got mad !

02:07 deep through the night. Preparing for tomorrows explore photos, I have decided to visit local multi storey car park which is due to be demolished any time soon. Accordingly to Hull Daily Mail, Osborne street multi-storey car park that was built in 1964 is set to be taken down and replaced by the new facelift which is happening in Hull at the minute. Car park will be demolished as a part of new £36 million Hull Venue development.

Currently I am collecting images of local buildings and industrial plants that are going to be taken down. Later I’ll post online my result from my car park visit. Also as a part of my blog , I will create a new gallery, which will show the buildings that went down through out last few years. I will also be taking photographs of local buildings that have been an “eye sore” for local council and are on the “black list” to be demolished.

In search for Hull’s “eye sore” buildings continues…..
June, blank sky, cold afternoon, 15:30,Osborne street, car park – and here I go again on the hunt to photograph and show old Hull buildings that are under the danger of being demolished or going to be demolished and the only way to capture the memory is photography. Following the road I turned right as I came out from the main entrance of the Osborne multi-storey car park I witnessed the saddest view I haven’t seen in a long time and I am an Urban Explorer with experience of hundreds of locations including biggest hospitals and asylums in UK. The photographs below will be showing the state of the streets or even a little district just around the corner from the biggest shopping center in Hull. The map is attached below. . . .

I started from Osborne street car park, than Osborne street, than around the corner following the same road go on to Roper street and than Myton street. The whole district is abandoned, some of the buildings are freshly left like Hull Boys Club but some of the buildings been left very long time ago like Music Man. The slide show below will be showing images one by one as I follow the road and will show the buildings that are completely left to rot down and one day will be landscaped.
Please note; all the pictures shown in below slideshow were taken by a professional photographer and were taken from public footpath. According to UK law, photographer can take photographs of private property as long as he is on the public footpath without any permissions.

This district most likely to get demolished and the legendary Hull Boys boxing club as well, unless a sponsor can be found to restore it and make into a youth club and preserve the historical part of Hull. But for now it is another part of Hull’s history that is going to get landscaped any time soon. Lets all make a change to the city !

Lets talk about my weekend . . . oh wait I don’t have one. On a weekend bases , every Friday and Saturday night and on a bank holiday Sunday night too I go out to local bars, pubs, night-clubs and music events. And today I will dedicate to the whole new gallery I decided to run called; Hull Daily Mail-The Big Night Out. I am promoting my gallery on here as a day out from every weekend routine. The gallery is also available on the slide menu above, click and scroll to see latest images. Every week I will be talking about my experience in the bars and clubs I visit. And my viewers and readers will be allowed into the deepest secrets and details about my weekend job and things I see and experience. The gallery is under construction but all ready has two slideshows from HU1 Music Festival ready for you. Just click and view. My current idea is to upload a small gallery every weekend and write up a little summery of the weekend at work. The slide show below is to show a little PROMO on what is waiting for you every weekend.

What is in your opinion symbol of Hull today ?
I decided to share my photographs symbolising Hull and the events in this city. Nothing negative, just positivity and fun. I am tired of seeing all people complains about Hull, in my opinion, how can someone complain about city where you live.

Architecture, minimalism and interior day

I wish there would be “National day of minimal architecture and interior”. When people upload images of interior and architecture elements online, hash tag and Instagram, filter and upload. Pictures from all over the world, Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Tokyo, Paris – biggest and most popular engineering constructions and architecture, urban plants. Little elements like doors and windows, staircases and tiles; DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS. My next gallery will present photographs of Hull but only showing little elements rather than full buildings.

7th of June,2016

Time to promote some of my recent design work. Most of it was done as a part of inspiration and learning about Adobe Photoshop more than I used to. The images I show are only to illustrate my current experiment with “design” and Adobe Photoshop. I use word “design” loosely just because I am only learning now. My main inspiration and work is based around minimalism and Russian constructivism of 1930s propaganda posters. Minimalism gets the message across to the viewer very quick and Russian constructivism was the simplest form of carrying and delivering information to the reader or viewer. I am posting just a few of my “most successful”posters and the rest you can find above, on the menu drop down under PROJECTS. Click on the gallery to view the images in full size.

Fantastic trip to Welton, East Yorkshire. Beautiful nature and really nice weather is all you need for a photography day out. A lot of walking in the fresh air is tiring but worth every second to see that beautiful landscape. Photographs are presented below.

FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY ! ! ! I set a new plan for the project that I was planing to do long time ago and this project will be based around Hull graffiti ! I am going to collect a gallery of images of street art like graffiti , tags and stickers. It will be all than put into an online book “Graffiti Black Book” and made into online journal where everyone can flick through it and see local graffiti. I will be gathering a large gallery of work to cover all the aspects of Hull graffiti subject. It was on my mind for too long and now time to give this project a life. Wish me luck . . . .

Freedom Festival 2016 !

Working with Hull Daily Mail over few days of Freedom Festival was the best experience I could have as a photo journalist and documentary photographer. C4DI building in Hull has provided their office as the “hub” for photographers to be able to go back and send images back to their offices and agencies. And I wasn’t the exception, it was a truly amazing job, the job that I can’t even call a job, just an amazing experience.
