About PAVEL ANTONOV for VOGUE Russia contributors' page:
    "Every year scores of ambitious European fashion photographers move to New York hoping to make it big in the Big Apple. Many of them end up shacking up in friends' living-rooms, working as dish-washers or waiters. But most of them don't get discovered by Donna Karan and wind up two weeks later with their photographs exhibited in her new DKNY Soho store. That's what happened to photographer Pavel Antonov who moved to Manhattan two years ago from Moscow where he had been working for fashion magazines. 
The exhibit this autumn at the DKNY boutique included Antonov's new series of emigres to Manhattan, among them pop artist duo Komar&Melamid on the roof of their studio and an iconic portrait of painter Yuri Gorbachev at his 57th Street apartment blanketed in a thick foxcoat. Says Donna Karan creative director Trey Laird: "Donna and I love that the energy of Antonov's photos are very much New York. They're quick. They have a pulse to them. They are not overly posed or overly lighted or overly technical. There's an immediacy and a freshness as if the photographer took the pictures out of passion," adding that "everybody is from somewhere. Even a Russian emigrant, a poet, a porn star, can be a typical New Yorker."
