About the photographer
Artur Baboev was born in 1985 in Leningrad. He started his artistic journey in photography in 2007, when he began to capture the beauty of the nature of his ancestral lands - Karachay-Cherkessia, and alongside - its local horses, whose images became the central theme of his creative work.
Artur's skill and talent were soon noticed and recognized by the professional community – already in 2010, he became the winner of the national photo award "Best Photographer". Later his works were honoured with awards at such prestigious contests as IPA - International Photography Awards (USA), Prix de la Photographie (France), Deutscher Fotobuchpreis (Germany), International Equine Art Competition (USA), NDawards (France), National Geographic Awards (Russia), Moscow International Foto Awards (Russia) and many others.
Artur's works were exhibited at such venues as the Central House of Artists, the Lumiere Brothers Gallery, the gallery on Tverskoy Boulevard in Moscow, Château de Maisons-Laffitte in Paris, as well as in New York, Verona, Vilnius, St. Petersburg, Yerevan, etc.
Artur Baboev's photographs were published in such popular glossy publications as "Horse Illustrated magazine" and "Art horse magazine" in the United States, "Equestrian Time magazine" in Italy, and also in Germany, China, France and other countries.
Artur Baboev is also the author of a photo book about Akhal-Teke horses "Golden horse. The legendary Akhal-teke", published in 2014 in the United States by Abrams Books and subsequently republished in national languages in Germany (“Goldene Pferde”, by Cosmos) and China (“BLOOD-SWEATING HORSE ON THE SILK ROAD. THE LEGENDARY AKHAL-TEKE. 丝路上的汗血马. 传奇的阿哈捷金”). At the moment, an extended republication of the book in Russian language is in the making.
Finally, Artur's works are exhibited in private collections in Paris, New York, Beijing, Brussels, Berlin, Hamburg, Rome, Beirut, Warsaw, Cairo, Tokyo, and, sure enough, in Russia.
