Nelli Palomäki –Sons of Nakhimov


Nelli Palomäki’s latest series Sons of Nakhimov is a series of portraits of young pupils from the Nakhimov NavalAcademy, a Russian military school in St Petersburg. The work addresses the tradition of classic, black and white photographic portraiture and the relationship between photography and memory: “A portrait remains forever. It is a desperate way to stay connected to someone who, though possibly a stranger, remains so familiar. It is my way of preserving a part of that person, embalming them. I carry my subject’s memories with me, memories, as they are, being so intimately connected with photographs. Secretly I study their faces. This is how I remember them. I wonder how they remember me”.
