From Andrey Belkov’s interview with Vadim Gushchin for Bleek Magazine:
Vadim Gushchin: When shooting the object, I’m trying to abstract from it. It is no more than a framework for me, to which something bigger can be attached. The object transforms into archetype without distinct individual features. It turns into an abstract concept, an idea, into a recognizable internationally unified sign: such as a book, an envelope or a pill.
