Lot Essay

Welcome to MELNIKOFF Art! Let me introduce you to an incredible sight captured in a breathtaking photograph. Behold the stunning volcanic range of Klyuchevskaya Sopka, captured in autumn of 2003 from a vantage point atop another prominent Kamchatka volcano, Sheveluch, just 16 miles (25 km) away. In the foreground of this panoramic masterpiece lies a dead forest, a victim of Sheveluch’s recent eruption.

This awe-inspiring photo was taken by none other than Sergey Melnikoff, an intrepid photographer who braved the harsh and unforgiving terrain of Kamchatka in 1999, 2003, and 2005. These locations are not for the faint of heart or the unprepared, as they are located far off the beaten path and require heavy professional equipment to capture their natural beauty.

Klyuchevskaya Sopka is an active volcano of the Kamchatka Peninsula, far eastern Russia. It is one of the highest active volcanoes in the world, rising to a height of 15,584 feet (4,750 m), the highest point on the peninsula. The volcano consists of a truncated cone with a central crater, with some 70 lateral craters and cones on the lower slopes. The volcano, which has erupted more than 50 times since 1700, is characterized by smoke continuously billowing above its summit. The Kamchatka Volcanological Station, established in 1935, is located at its base.

Sadly, Kamchatka is now a closed area, strictly guarded by the Russian military, and inaccessible to foreign visitors. But fear not, for Sergey’s stunning photographs offer a glimpse into this mysterious and captivating land, and serve as a testament to the power and beauty of Mother Nature. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of this rare and incredible collection.
