my name is lena, i'm from moscow. but i don't live there for several years. my daughter and I move a lot. it's something like nomadism. i want to get rid of a sense of home in me. about a year ago i seriously took up photography. although I haven't a real camera till today, unfortunately. i do almost all of the pictures on the iphone. I shoot a lot of oddities in everyday life, street photo, but mostly shoot my daughter. this is my way of telling about my own discomfort with any space, trying to figure out how to own me and my body, how to visually express things, that I think, are stigmas in russian culture - the household fears, fear of violence, hostility in the family. for us with yasja it's very comfortably to live and take pictures together. this allows us to understand each other. like we have another language just for the two of us. to say a lot that others can read somehow differently.
