Ilya Natarius selected 18 artists across a wide array of media and followed them to their place of inspiration, where their creative spark sets fire. Documenting the experience through 35mm film and in-depth interviews, Ilya and his team of photographers and journalists hand-printed and compiled a photo essay exploring the source of creativity. The result is both a book and gallery exhibition: Creative Combustion.
