Impressions of Cuba
The concept and realization are very different from the central features of his work. It is only natural that it be strongly influenced by the aesthetic and compositional principles of architecture. Hence his pictures are always well-defined, concise and balanced in composition, laconic in expression, translated into a form that reveals the essence. Confident, Popov framed the image still within the viewfinder, refining the frame by removing any excess thus achieving the most difficult of all perfections – simplicity. This makes his works accomplished before the final copy. Therefore, we can hardly take away or add something to make the work „prettier“.
