My name is Yana Rits and I am a professional cinematographer: I am a producer and DOP by background. However, the first time I fell in love with capruting image was due to photography. When I was 15 I received my frst camera and fell in love with the process of capturing a still image of life, and the process of developing the image in the dark room. I started studying photography at Prague's renowned school, FAMU, and, although I later got transferred to the film department, my love for photography never went away. To this day, I dedicate my time to take my Leica with me wherever I go and create surrealistic collages for altering reality in the way I please - and that is the beauty of photography: creating a worlds as you'd wish to see it.
