Несколько моих мыслей о красоте.
Я люблю снимать в моменте - ловить мгновения, когда человек совсем не понимает, что происходит; ведь именно в этом он красив. 
Я люблю выводить людей на разные эмоции, ведь воспоминания, окрашенные сильными эмоциями остаются в нашей памяти навсегда и человек всегда будет помнить эту магию. 
Я люблю фотографировать любой возраст и любое состояние души и тела; ведь я вижу, насколько красивы все люди, и знаю, как эту красоту проявлять. 
Я забросил физику, кочевал по всему мир. 
Я встретил много разных людей и научился понимать их, чувствуя себя, и понимать себя, чувствуя их. 
Я приглашаю вас в ваш мир моими глазами, мир истинной красоты, познания.   

 Valery Latypov
   Valery Latypov is an established Russian photographer who has made his name capturing musicians in the intense emotion of performance. He has collaborated with artists including Depeche Mode, Peter Gabriel, Deva Premal, Marylin Manson and the Crystal Fighters, creating striking portraits of them both in concert and back stage, including at festivals such as Glastonbury and WOMAD (UK).
   But Music is not where Valery’s passion for observation stops. In 2006, having completed a Masters degree in the Physics of Condensed Matter, he began to travel the world. His shots of people going about their lives in countries as diverse as India, Israel, Thailand, Myanmar, Russia and Turkey show his unique talent for capturing the remarkable in the ordinary, the striking rhythm and and colour in the everyday.
   Valery is a visual artist, his goal being always to extract and convey each moment with passion. His talent has not gone unnoticed and because of this he has managed to turn it into a career, working commercially and as a concert photographer across Europe and America. His images have been published in Rolling Stone magazine, The Guardian, Yoga Journal and multiple international publications. He has exhibited in Moscow regularly since 2008, and has won several prestigious awards, including first prize in the 2008 Agent Provocateur Moscow competition and the 2012 Diner’s Club Award.
