In "Planet Lovigin" the artist takes the reader along in a fairy-tale road trip through his Russian homeland and the Caucasus region. The pictures frequently sport the artist’s handwritten commentaries, or he furnishes them with ornaments.

Lovigin travels the planet, casting his ironic gaze on things and people, overdrawing a cliché here and there, and yet always displaying evident affection for his subjects. The artist likes to call his work the »Soul Kitchen« of photography.

Lovigin (born 1981), who is exclusively represented by °CLAIR gallery,studied architecture before taking up photography. His internet blog lovigin.livejournal.com has thousands of young Russian followers. Since 2006 his photograph series have been shown in numerous exhibitions, most recently at the Museum of Photography Thessaloniki, the Photobiennale in Moscow and the Istanbul Modern Art Museum.
