May 17 Askeri Gallery presented the debut art project of Alexei Duplyakov "Reflection". Alexey graduated from the department of design of the Higher School of Economics, cooperates as a photographer with magazines InStyle, L'Officiel, Grazia, Marie Claire and other publications. Working in the genre of fashion photography and secular reporting Alexei pays special attention to the composition, details and images of his characters, which allows us to see the artist's eyes in his works. Duplyakov's creative ideas were embodied in his independent art projects. The first success on this path was the participation of a photograph from the project of Duplyakov Memories in the annual exhibition of the CSI Winzavod "Best of Russia 2015" . And now, two years later, Alexey presents his solo exhibition in Askeri Gallery .
