Oh my… This… Is… Something else. You see, I often feel like I am becoming jaded in my daily research for this blog, due to constant overexposure to pure awesomeness, but every once in a while something very special will come along and stop me in my tracks. This is one such example, one I consider to be a truly magical and inspiring project.

Russia-based artist Leonid Tishkov and photographer Boris Bendikov have collaborated to created a series titled Private Moon, which chronicles the relationship between a man and the illuminated planet. Tishkov calls this installation a “visual poem, telling the story about a man who found the Moon and stayed with her for the rest of his life.”

I don’t know why, but this is seriously making me feel all emotional and misty-eyed. It is so beautiful and kind of romantic, don’t you think? Yes, I’m turning super soft on you now. Pure beauty has this power over me and I become the softest of softies. Guilty as charged.

    Oooh, this is haunting and a little discomforting – whilst so romantic! The moon hidden in a little box or in a deserted land, it’s like the man has kidnapped her, keeping his love all to himself. And yet she remains luminous. Love. Thanks Dana!
