“In this project I refer to the subject of the first wave of Russian emigration in 1920ā€™s. Combining old photos and flower petals I destroy the original images of people in the photos and make them anonymous.”

“I reflect on how with the lapse of time some details are erased from our memory and every time we recall something from the past, we construct another image replacing some parts by new ones. I’m trying to do the same with the pictures. This way Iā€™m also trying to achieve the connection between modern dimension and telling a story.”
