Book of Igor
Igor Stepanov photographed by William Baker.
"I first saw him on Instagram: a Latvian fantasy in threadbare Calvins. 'In yer face'. Selling desire.
I ‘liked’ his posts.
We met in a photo studio.
This is Igor. This is his book."
From Igor’s shameless Instagram selfies to private shared moments, from staged studio sessions, collages and drawings, to travel documentary, this obsession turned photo book documents 18 months of Igor’s life, depicting the relationship between a photographer and his muse, between desire and absence, between longing and possibility.
