“For me photography is the mirror of internal feelings. I have chosen still life photography as the medium because it can express different emotions and deliver visual sensations to convey these emotions; it allows me to play with light and colour palettes to create atmosphere and mood: making pictures rather than taking them.
The images in this panel were collected over a 2 year period. Each image represents the mood and emotions that I felt at the time: joy and sadness, calm and passion, sentimentality and sensitivity which are general characteristics of the Russian soul.”
I would like to thank all the members of OPS and especially Shelagh Roberts who offered valuable advise and opinions on my panel.
