Disturbing Beauty 2022
Dedicated to the turbulent times in my country and in my Universe
"Disturbing Beauty" came into my head as a concept a week before Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The series arose, but the feeling of conscious fear did not, I denied everything that was happening around me, not accepting the possibility of war. All my unrealized anxiety accumulated in those pictures.
The challenges of current reality present to our eyes a new conception of melancholic beauty. Notes of overwhelming fear for the future, which may not be, appear on images of Ukrainian women. Premonition of disaster became an emotionally draining game that we can't help but play. Unfortunately, now this is the reality of the absolute majority of Ukrainians - to pretend that anxiety does not exist, while it has swallowed you whole.
