I was shooting a reportage about The Baku World Challenge races last week. The Baku World Challenge was the final event of the FIA GT Series Championship that took place in Baku on 23-24 November 2013. It was a standard sport reportage that I shot several times before. I completed the assignment but still had few photos left so, decided to edit them a cinematic way for my blog. A cinematic shot looks as a frame that could be taken from a movie. So, here are my cinematic style photos from the race. Enjoy!

«Завод» (“Zavod”) is a catchy name for a new project that represents an attempt to exploit non-traditional and alternative spaces by YARAT Contemporary Art Organisation. This project featuring works by 29 emerging Azerbaijani artists took place at the long abandoned air conditioner factory. There was a slide show of works of Azerbaijan photographers followed by the concert by "PG large used project group". Here are some of the photos I have taken with my little fujifilm x100s during that event.
