Artist's Expression - Written by Natalia Shaidenko


Photography is a medium by which I disassemble the reality around me and build a new one based on my interpretation. I love composing perfect frames but portraits are my favorite.

Even though I prefer thoroughly calculated images to a journalistic approach, a unique depiction of everyday events is a big part of my life. My primary goal is to catch a perfect moment and to leave behind the best possible memory.

I draw my inspiration from classical paintings and controversial illustrations alike, and I believe that we can find beauty in anything (as cheesy as it may sound to some). Any ordinary day and especially significant one can turn into great imagery; one only needs to look from the right angle. Every story deserves to be told, but some stories can be reinvented to become beautiful tales.

Please reach out to allow me to tell your love story.
