Dmitry Baev

When 10Photos was launched in early 2021, we didn’t realize how enormously (!) diverse, varied, and creative photography could be. Let’s take portrait photography as an example. A beautiful, expressive female or male face and wonderful light are often the only “ingredients” for a great photo. Yes, that's all it (usually) takes, but then you find photographers like Dmitry Baev and realize that creative photography exists off the beaten path. Fortunately! Photography as a distinct art form, unique, unusual and exciting. Dmitry shows us all this with his photographs.

Ukrainian portrait photographer Dmitry Baev from Odesa wrote about his photos: “For me, photography is a kind of feeling, not a technique. The essence is the emotional substance and not color, composition, or form. Technical means and elements can only enhance the emotional reaction.”

His passion for Dutch painting and for Impressionism greatly influence Dmitry’s images. With smooth transitions between depths and highlights and muted colors, his photos almost resemble finely painted works of art. Emotional and atmospheric images, widely different from the classic portrait photography, are the result. Refreshingly unique and beautiful to look at, we at 10Photos think.
