There are still about 50000 photos waiting to be published. I hope to publish at least some of them online at Wikimedia Commons and Getty Images. Check those sites for updates. Wikimedia Commons and Getty Images provide good search capabilities. In order to find anything just use "Argenberg" tag and add whatever you wish to find: city, place, country, object, topic, theme, any combination of keywords or simply a search phrase.
In this world we wander the limitless and taste only the infinite. We explore the inconceivable, traverse the unthinkable and survey the incomprehensible. We dive into the oceans, seas, islands, mountain peaks and valleys, deserts, sunsets, sunrises, sky, sun, clouds, rain, haze, forests, trees, countries, cities, architecture, historic sites, people, animals, birds, art, parties, festivals and more. We travel across the Eurasian continent, mostly in Russia, South-East Asia, India and Middle East. We often get to the wildest places of our planet no one has ever seen or been before. Sometimes we even get around locations where the fate of future generations is decided in war battles. Time and space are less defined there. God is our shepherd, we shall not want. And above all we travel people's minds, souls and destinies and these are the most irresistible journeys. I, Vyacheslav Argenberg, photograph all of this for the history as it is unfolding. I want all these pictures to take you back to the moment and place.
My photographs have been published by CNN, Huffington Post, The New York Times, NBC, WSJ, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times, Financial Times, ABC News, Fox News, USA Today, RT, Yahoo, Bloomberg, Reuters, Penguin Books, Random House, Harper Collins, Macmillan, Lonely Planet, National Geographic, Wikipedia, Vokrug Sveta, Interfax, TASS, RIA Novosti, Izvestia, AIF, Vedomosti, Komsomolskaya Pravda, Moskovskij Komsomolets, Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Lenta, RBK and many more. I can count thousands of books and magazines and over a hundred of publishers, not including tens of thousands of web-sites.
Once upon a time there was a big photography web-site here, but it's now gone with the wind all over the world. Those early times are over, but the enchantment spirit lives on. I still send original picture files (including raw files) on request and sign all the required paperwork for publishers, media companies and advertising agencies, like in good old times. Please send me a message at and specify what you need. The summary for my photo collection currently is as follows: 100000+ pictures, 2+ terabytes, 30+ countries, 1500+ locations, 7+ years of travel.
Enjoy! Explore planet Earth with VascoPlanet... See a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in wild flower. Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.
