Den Gladkov



Visual artist working in photography, creative direction, text & moving image.

Born in New York, USA. 

In 2015, I started my career at Harper’s Bazaar Russia as a stylist.  

In 2017, I graduated from the Moscow State University with the BA Degree of a lifestyle media journalist. My final project, ‘21 Magazine’ ,  was aimed to showcase the emerging Russian youth. 

After completing my degree in journalism, I moved to London where I continued to pursue my career in photography, working on a freelance basis & studying Photography at the London College of Communication (Graduate Diploma, 2019) . 

In 2019, my work Max. Movement Studies  was exhibited as a part of a group show at the Truman Brewery in London. 

I also got a degree at MA Fashion Photography course at the University of the Arts London (London College of Fashion) in 2020. My graduation project ‘Dancer’s Diary: Performers in Confinement’ was shortlisted as TOP-15 UK Photography projects by VICE Magazine.

Clients include British Fashion Council, Dior, London Fashion Week, Vogue Italia, VICE, GRACE Models, GUM Section, Eifman Ballet, the Bolshoi Theatre amongst many others. 

My visual practice is focused on the male form, exploring the male character through menswear and portraiture with a decadentic, nostalgic feel of dark romanticism and retro chic. 

Currently working as a freelance photographer between London, Moscow & Saint Petersburg.

Available worldwide.
