Aliosha Biz comes from a family of Moscow artists with Austrian roots. Before he left his place of birth in 1989, he studied violin at the Tschaikovsky Conservatory. Since then he has lived in Vienna, and though he visited the Music and Art College there, he was also discovered by Vienna’s cultural scene in the “Academy of the Streets.”Aliosha feels a special love for all facets of Jewish music.

This photo has a great "feel" to it. It has a vibrance and glow that tells a story. I feel like I'm watching him play the violin. You've captured him well! Thanks for sharing!

beautiful work Ollie.

the low key feel works very well with just enough tones in the image to give it substance - showing more with less (for instance the neck of the violin has faded into the background but you still know it's there from his hand).

i really like the way the highlights bleed into the shadows as well (LBO?).

I immediately thought of this poem..

The Touch of the Master's Hand
by Myra Brooks Welch

It was battered and scarred,
And the auctioneer thought it
hardly worth his while
To waste his time on the old violin,
but he held it up with a smile.

"What am I bid, good people", he cried,
"Who starts the bidding for me?"
"One dollar, one dollar, Do I hear two?"
"Two dollars, who makes it three?"
"Three dollars once, three dollars twice, going for three,"

But, No,
From the room far back a gray bearded man
Came forward and picked up the bow,
Then wiping the dust from the old violin
And tightening up the strings,
He played a melody, pure and sweet
As sweet as the angel sings.

The music ceased and the auctioneer
With a voice that was quiet and low,
Said "What now am I bid for this old violin?"
As he held it aloft with its' bow.

"One thousand, one thousand, Do I hear two?"
"Two thousand, Who makes it three?"
"Three thousand once, three thousand twice,
Going and gone", said he.

The audience cheered,
But some of them cried,
"We just don't understand."
"What changed its' worth?"
Swift came the reply.
"The Touch of the Masters Hand."

And many a man with life out of tune
All battered with bourbon and gin
Is auctioned cheap to a thoughtless crowd
Much like that old violin

A mess of pottage, a glass of wine,
A game and he travels on.
He is going once, he is going twice,
He is going and almost gone.

But the Master comes,
And the foolish crowd never can quite understand,
The worth of a soul and the change that is wrought
By the Touch of the Masters' Hand.

Oliver, I can't help but think that the way you photograph the people you know and the kindness and sincerity you show them must have a profound affect on them and certainly your images raise their perceived "value" in they eyes of all who view the images. In a way- you make those subjects (the people) into masterpieces by the way you touch them and portray them through your artistic vision and sensitivity to all that is good about them.
