What We Do in the Shadows
Just like that: “something odd about me”. I am quite ordinary.
Yes, I am a photographer, proudly speaking.

Well, by the way, I didn’t notice. A photographer has a passport, that’s a fact, but I‘ve never heard photography to be “Ukrainian” one. What are the criteria? If we use geotagging it doesn’t concern “young photography” of different countries. Tula spice-cake is an example of Russian design and that’s what I understand. But it is not a young one.
Yes, I do. I like many of them. Unfortunately I hardly keep names in mind.
It is my favorite “fun” that is beneficial from all possible points of view. I do what I like, after all.
My recipe is that I am a girl, and no one can say me no.
I’d like to try many different things. I will define my special genre in about twenty years.
I don’t make shootings under strict scenario; rather I choose a theme and find stills while shooting. Often it happens within models interaction so there are no misunderstandings between us. Surrounding people’s reaction is surrounding people’s reaction. I am interested in it, in other words I read comments, though I think such things shouldn’t affect the stuff you work at and the way you do it.
There were local ones of course. Though I would prefer making photographs for magazine feature and entering offline through this door. The exhibition time will come, I think, as soon as I define my special genre, we’ve told about it.
I want to believe I am gaining experience and probably becoming wiser even, but I hardly can say exactly what kind of life experience reveals in the particular photograph. In ten years my projects will become clearer for the audience and more mysterious for me.
Film has become more expensive, that is the only one straight impact on my stills. Twenty years ago I would photograph Odessa that had vanished nowadays, and that would be great.

I am making a lot of good photographs, and people will love me for that. It sounds probably not so ambitious, though neither one thing, nor another is a little bit simple at all as it turned out to be.
