Photographer Andrey Usov, who shot the leader of group "Cinema" Victor Tsoy Nude, stated that the actor posed for the cover of an album by Boris Grebenshchikov. However the picture then it never saw the light.
According to Andrei Usov, it was in 1983. Viktor Tsoi was not famous, but despite all of the above was friends with a much more successful Boris Grebenshikov. At that time, the artist recorded the album "Children of Africa", and all was ready, apart from the cover. Especially for her and starred Choi.
"The timing was crazy, we were extremely fun, interesting: traveled a lot, met often, and the time was at all. If you went into nature, traditionally stayed at the cottage Seva Gakkel - he played Grebenshchikov in "Aquarium" on the cello. And from there on bicycles raced to bathe in the Sun. There was a beach with the remains of concrete bunkers, maybe they were from the war. I was asked to undress and put on a stone wall of Viktor Tsoi and his wife Marianas, Seva Gakkel Grebenshchikov and spouse Lyudmila. Victor was extremely embarrassed - I think he had never posed naked. But later we cheered, naked swinging on the swings, ran around the water and bathed. I think it was Monday on the weekends at the beach is not overcrowded, and that day it was deserted," quoted Usov StarHit.
And then on the picture left 1 Choi. The photographer explained his decision: "He was so helpless, helpless, looked into the lens. I liked this picture. However, for the decoration of the plate Grebenshchikov none of that footage was taken. And I have long hesitated to publish data frames".
Later Mustache he wanted to do a portrait shoot of Viktor Tsoi, but he refused. "Did not work then, before his death, normal contact, which was in the 1980s. People are changing extremely fast, but I remember a nice young man. And, you know, he could surprise. I once met him on the banks of the river Zhdanovka. He's an ax chopping of logs of garden sculpture. Apparently, for the Playground: or a bear, or some knight. Choi it was a Woodcarver, what few people remember. Now, of course, from the work nothing left, and that's a pity", said the photographer.
