    I often hear “If you don’t know what to do - do what you know”. It means “if you can’t improve world’s injustice – do what you can do and do it as well as you can”, or “if you are sure you are a good artist you worth doing what you have intended to do than introspecting and wasting time”.

  • Natalya Schlyahovaya

    Photoart is a reflection of changes and personal development and also a sociocultural experience in which you exist and replicate yourself. But it is more interesting to plunge your foot into a puddle.

  • Artem Mishukov

    We’re all synchronized with everything; something has an effect on us, and we have an effect on something else – it’s like a flood. Man always asks himself: «What am I doing and why?» and it is the same in art. Some events just push you to it.

  • Lisa Dedova

    It’s my way of cooperation with myself. Watching at just-made picture I can think over the things I felt at the moment that I have caught. Due to photography I understand myself better, I am aware of what is important for me and what is indifferent.

  • Sveta Mullari

    I am a technique-fetishist. Any technique is like a…(It is difficult not to use metaphors related with children, you know) labyrinth. When studying it you face with many surprises that change your opinion about drawing.

  • Elena Chetverik

    I think many people don’t go in for creation just because there is a stereotype that creation and particularly drawing are given by nature. I think that nature gives other qualities that either let you go in for creation or not. One of these qualities is attentiveness.

  • Varvara Lozenko

    You need to think more, it’s not so easy. There’s a lot of senseless, inessential images that are often meaningless to a person who made them. This is what Roland Barthes called “excessive photography”. He died years ago but what would he say now at the time of Instagram?

  • Stas Kalashnikov

    Eventually I notice that my photographs are changing, for example, every month I delete half of what I did before. I constantly update something new and delete something too.

  • Olya Ivanova

    I like to photograph Russia. Here I can see a double bottom behind a picture, be nostalgic, laugh and feel pain in my heart. All my impressions here are absolutely personal and concern me.

  • Anna Danilova

    Every story about me will have a slight flavor of Russian cinematography melancholy. I don’t know if it’s me or a life that I’m living.

  • Dina lun

    Someone like bodies and faces more and I like plants, cactuses and fruits.
