PicsArt user Sasha Vladimer (@sashavladimer) is an appreciator of the arts. He loves literature, music, photography, and architecture, and we know this because they are the subjects which most frequently attract the attention of his camera. He takes stunning shots of books, records, cameras, and street scenes, turning these tools and works of art into still-lifes for his photography. He elects to shoot in black & white, a dramatic choice which simplifies his works into a confrontation between light and dark, and gives his photos a distinctive edge and style. Here are some of his best photos!
