Sergei Sviatchenko

Close Up And Private Modern Classicist: A man’s guide to look at the details.

A new book on the work of Danish – Ukrainian architect, artist, photographer and curator, Sergei Sviatchenko.

Recognition can come in many ways and can certainly take you by surprise.

This is what happened when Sergei Sviatchenko, after many years of practicing as a visual artist, discovered the blogging culture in the two-thousands, and used it for his art photo project ‘Close Up And Private’,

Creating images of men’s clothing in the way he usually works, with his collage principles, brought him towards a large audience of people of different ages, all united by an interest in details, quality, and heritage or what he calls “visual language of style”.

Nominations for “The Best Dressed Man”, “the winner of the World Blazer Competition”, countless interviews and editorials followed, but the most important thing is that the project (or the site) “has become the regular go-to site for many men on a what-to-wear mission each morning”.

Book design by Sergei Sviatchenko and Per Freundlich Andersen.

4 different cover images – these will be randomly allocated for orders.
