In the life of every person there are periods when there is a feeling of frustration of the meaning of life and purpose. I think that we should not be afraid of such periods, such precisely because of such challenges, we have the opportunity to rethink our life and move forward

Svetlana is a fine art photographer from Kazakhstan. She uses style of an old portrait painting to create images that are thematically focused on identity, relationships, emotions and dreams. Her immaculate technique creates beautiful evocations of universal emotions of beauty, femininity and fragility. She expertly visualizes atmospheric dreams, utilizing the uncanny and clever metaphor, while unlocking what it means to think, feel, dream and express in the modern world.
