Sometimes it's enough to crawl on a stool to see things differently.

For several years, photographer Igor Chekachkov watched the lives of friends and acquaintances perched on a stool

“Once, when I got into a student dormitory, I was very impressed with the way people coexist in such conditions. I made the first frame of this series there, having climbed onto a bunk bed. It was 2011, I was a photo reporter and did not quite understand how to work with photography in personal projects.
It took more than a year before I continued. By that time, I had already realized my interest in human relations and the observation of life in general, I began to communicate with artists and felt the strength to retreat from the framework of reportage photography. I began to shoot my friends. Since interesting situations that can be captured from this position were rare, I invited two girls to live in my house for several weeks. So I could watch their life and constantly shoot.Our contract was simple: they are always naked, I always take pictures. It was interesting to watch how two people live together, do simple household chores, interact with each other.

Having lived this way for about a month, I accumulated enough material, but I wanted to make the project more ambitious - illustrating our daily life in various aspects. But when I first put photographs on the Web, they became much more popular than I thought, and immediately followed by many exhibitions and publications in different countries. After such a return, I felt that I could not continue to pursue this project. A year later, I once again began to take off from the top point in the hope of making the project the way I had originally seen it. I again photographed mostly friends and people who surround me.

I would like a smaller production, if only because before that I had been working in news agencies for a long time and was used to catching the moment and not putting it. Because it was assumed that people live with me and get used to the camera. Periodically, I suggested that the models do something, but still tried only to create a certain atmosphere and direct it.It’s probably more like a movie job than a photo. Often and did not have to intervene.
I like not to show people's faces: this is how a person from a particular person becomes a universal symbol. I wanted to talk about people in general, and not about an individual. This is also emphasized by the view from above - such a view creates a certain distance, detachment and makes it possible to observe human life from the side, like under a microscope.
