Vlad Zorin, artist/photographer/writer
Russian born, Paris based.
Vlad was born in Chelyabinsk. Since teenage years, he has been working as a photographer. At the age of 15 he moved to Moscow.
Vlad’s artistic language was formed from the analysis of male sexuality, sensuality, and youth experience. Such projects as Hare and God, inspired by Vlad’s partner and muse Yulian, became a personal manifesto of love and public call for freedom. Vlad explores the themes of personal freedom, the new generation experience, and the reflection of sexuality.
In June 2019, Zorin’s first personal exhibition Hare was held in Moscow at Cube.Moscow. Art pieces from the project participated in Phillips Charity
Auction, Paddle8 online auction and also became a part of the Boys Boys Boys book by Ghislain Paslcal with Elton John AIDS Foundation. Since then they continue to cooperate.
In February 2020 he collaborated with the French brand Ludovic de Saint-Sernin, for which he shot an ad campaign. In March 2020 he collaborated with Swarovski for their 125th anniversary.
In December 2021 Vlad presented his first book With Love from Russia. In February 2022 he launched his second offline personal exhibition Soft Power. The project born as a call for peace in the summer of 2020 during political protest in Belarus, dramatically became an antiwar shouting of the youth represented in the photographs for the project.
In June 2022 Vlad presented his book at Paris Ass Book Fair
Today, Vlad’s works are presented in private collections in Moscow, Paris, London and New York.
