*An Epic Achievement in Artistic Nude Photography!!!, April 26 2005
By Jack Gilbert “Editor of Michelle7.com” (USA)*
I’ll say it right now – this is a MASTERPIECE! This is more than a book that was long overdue by one of this generation’s truly great artists. It’s a breakthrough, a smashing, in-your-face assault. It’s the ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ of nude photography books. It’s 144 pages of pure bliss!
Russian photographer Grigori Galitsin is well known to those denizens of the internet who’ve ventured into the realms of artistic nude photography, perusing such sites as Michelle7.com, Met-Art.com, and Galitsin’s own site, Galitsin-News.com. But to see his work in print is a staggering experience. It contains breathtaking images of all the gorgeous models made famous by Galitsin: Valentina, Alice, Julia, Katia, Krista, Liza, Nusia, Olesia, and many more. There is so much energy, so much beauty, it’s almost too much to take in one sitting. I’ll abstain from an intellectual review of what makes Galistin so special, but if lovers or artistic nudes, youthful beauty, and sensual erotica are looking for a Holy Grail in their genre – this is it. Generations from now, historians will likely view this publication as the most impactful and most influential of the early millennium. Move over Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Gauguin, and make room for Grigori Galitsin.

The best. A real artistic photographers, a concept creator (i love the galitsin colors) and a eternal dreamer. Galitsin take risks and keep a very inovativ vision during all her career. I prefer her soft pics than her hard pics but he still my favorit with Pavel Kiselev and Katarina Widmanska. Russians photographers are the best i don’t know why but it’s a fact.
What I have seen Galitsin is doing Art, not porn. Its just typical when others get along with all the perverted stuff published on the net and he is making something beautiful and he is blamed for being the bad guy.
I hope he will coming back soon.
“Grigori Galitsin is a world-renowned photographer from Volgograd, Russia. His work has appeared on numerous websites and magazines for many years and it is universally respected as pure, pristine, and sensuous. In many ways, Grigori Galitsin is a pioneer of a certain style of photography – we like to call it “romantic.” His models are always beautiful, his settings are idyllic, the moods his photos evoke are soft, sensuous, and somewhat mystical. A Galitsin photo seems almost lifted out of our dreams.
Grigori has been involved in art in one way or another most of his life. Working in painting, video, and photography, he has tirelessly expressed his vision of a purer, more sumptuous world. He was the winner of the Master Kodak Exhibition in 1997.
At the center of Grigori’s work is the mystique and beauty of Russia’s young models. But he is not a teen photographer. His subjects rather seem timeless in their innocence and charm. There is a certain sensual malaise to his models, as if they are basking on a warm summer day”
