DESCRIPTIONThis shot is inspired by butoh dance and explores imperfection.
I created the metaphor using different textures: vulnerable flower ang crumpled paper. What we really feel about ourselves and what we show.
The performer's pose denies traditional beauty of form, but creates space for something new.
AUTHORI'm a self taught photographer from Saint-Petersburg. Artist and dancer in the past. I like to explore world around me through different visual forms. I started photography as a hobby when I was seven. For a long time I was fond of documentary photography and I still do. My other field is creating staged photography. Mostly my works are hand made from the scratch. I create set designs and costumes as well. My works are about subconscious, shadows, symbols. I explore my own feelings about very personal things. Sometimes it's just a glimpse of impression that I get from my subject. I try to visualize it. As a dancer I love expression of body movement and my models are often dancers.
