Whose money does Lukashenka spend to hire a photographer who shoots kings?


It has become known that famous photographer Sasha Gusov will work with the Belarusian dictator in the nearest time.

“Salidarnasts” newspaper informs this. Sasha Gusov shoots Hollywood stars, kings, and presidents. A portrait by Gusov is considered to be a symbol of prestige.

The information about Sasha Gusov’s work with Alyaksandr Lukashenka was announced in Moscow at a presentation of an ecological photoproject Re: [construction of the future]. Gusov shot photos of Russian public figures, among them TV stars Ksenia Sobchak and Tina Kandelaki.

A reporter for Spletnik, an entertainment resource, the leader of the highlife observer in the Ru-net, talked with the famous photographer. She found out that Gusov is now preparing a new project for the Moroccan Government. He was taking photos of the king there. What concerns the nearest future, Sasha Gusov is going to work with Alyaksandr Lukashenka.

A “Salidarnasts” correspondent contacted with her Russian colleague and then with the PR-manager of the last project of the photographer. The both confirmed information about the cooperation of Gusov and Lukashenka, but refused to say the details.

The press service of the Belarusian ruler says it doesn’t have information about this.

Sasha Gusov is called a photographer of “kings and presidents”. He moved from Russia to London 20 years ago andhas become one of the most demanded photographers in the world. He took photos for well-known Sotheby's and Christie’s art auctions for a long time. However, the main theme of his art is people. Placido Domingo, Yury Bashmet, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Ewan McGregor. Ordinary stars, or world celebrities.

“He knows all millionaires-art collectors. Not their names, but their mimics and gestures,” the photographer was described in an NTV report some years ago. The reports said Sasha Gusov is unknown in Moscow, but everybody knows the Russian photographer in London.

Lord Bell is probably among the friends of the photographer. Otherwise, who else could acquaint Gusov with Lukashenka?
