Private Moon

Russian artist Leonid Tishkov can’t seem to go anywhere without a human-sized crescent moon by his side.

the artist can usually be found with his lunar travel mate in tow, lounging on rooftops or dangling off the edge of a boat in scenes that take us back to our favorite childhood books.

Tishkov’s most recent obsession — a love affair with an illuminated, man-made moon — tugs at the heartstrings of any romantic soul. He’s documented the entire experience in a photography project called “Private Moon,” inviting viewers to glimpse intimate moments of his strange adventures.

Carrying around the words of Li Bai along with his moon on his journey, he begins to wander:

Human can never pluck the moon,

But she always goes with our step.

Shines as a mirror over red palace,

And thru the green mist she glitters.
