"Propaganda can and must, especially in time of war, abandon humanism and aesthetics, no matter how highly we value them, since in the struggle of the people it is about nothing else, but about its being" - Heinrich Goebbels

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. Svetlana has exhibited internationally with collective exhibitions in Europe and the USA. She has also exhibited at Paris.
