I’m a self-taught photo artist from Ukraine who recently moved to New York, USA. I’ve been into photography since 2009. I have always been a creative person – as a child I was good at painting and crafts. My passion for photography started rather unexpectedly. I fell in love with it and started shooting the world around me – gaining all my knowledge and inspiration through social media and online photography communities. A year-and-a-half later, I started creating fine art female portraits, which I still do today.
Photography is not only what I love and what I do, it’s also a gentle and romantic side of me. What I’m trying to show is a beautiful image and photography techniques, but also convey an idea, mood, atmosphere and associations. My images are fairytale-like, mystic, feminine, fragile and thoughtful. My silent pictures tell a story. Installations, costumes and Photoshop manipulation help me to embody my fantasies into a finished piece of art. I like to cooperate with different creative people but often prefer to do everything myself. I’ve already had workshops in different cities like Kiev, Moscow and St-Petersburg. I hope my move to New York will help me evolve as an artist and expand my creative work all around the world.
