The idea of my work is to show beauty in its classical manifestation.
As a resident of a big city, I grew up among multi-story buildings and busy streets witch were crowded with lots of people and transport. People there usually look for beauty and give meaning to man-made values, such as fashionable clothes, precious jewelry, housing, cars, going to the movies and theaters, restaurants and nightclubs. I tended to support that believes, but one day it changed.
Already in adulthood, I went to spend summer vacation in a village. I remember how my mother and I went through the valleys to the river. We walked on a bright sunny day through fields covered with wild flowers. They were very beautiful, colorful and there were so many of them. I remembered everything I appreciated in my urban reality and I realized that all of that was dimmed in comparison to the greatness and beauty that the flowers around me radiated. That day natural beauty took first place in my mind compared to the beauty that people create.
The second insight and confirmation of my belief occurred three years ago, when my husband and I spent several days in Las Vegas. I was shocked by the beauty of the city. While in Las Vegas I saw such a rare variety of architecture and design, museums, exhibitions and various shows. We spent days and nights walking around the city and viewing it’s miracles. One day we decided to go to the desert of Nevada to spend a day in nature. I was struck to the depths of my soul by the calm, majestic, beauty of the desert. With all my great interest and love for architecture and design, and for the entertainments that impressed me so much in Las Vegas, when I asked myself what made me more impressed, the scales leaned toward the desert and it was a deep insight for me.
I believe that flowers are the most beautiful thing that nature gives us. Approximately two years ago I got acquainted with such a concept as scanography. I was especially attracted by scans of flowers. Scanography is a method of photographing with a scanner, which is usually used for copying texts and images. But there are also people who experiment by scanning 3D objects. For a long time I had a desire to try such an unusual form of photography. You see images on this web-site as an implement of this idea.
While creating images I approached each flower in a scene like a character with its own mood. Flowers express themselves with unique shapes, colors and sizes. A black background creates visual depth and weight, and also adds an emphasis of color and shape to the flowers. Some compositions are really vibrant and expressive, some are calm and quiet like in a fairytale dream. But all of them possess a classy style and glory.
