Our ability to travel was removed so suddenly… I look through my pins on the map and question myself: why are we delaying our dreams? Every year I promised myself to go to Giverny and see Monet house and famous pond with water lilies but every year something else happens – so I keep postponing. So why? If it’s a dream you hold dear then should be ways to make your dream come true… at some point in your life. I will be honest with you about the answer – I was always waiting for the right season, right moment. But the situation with lockdown shows that if you keep waiting for the right time, it may never happen at all. Sometimes you have to make the most of the time you have!

This photograph is inspired by my dream to see the Claude Monet’s garden. The positive thing of isolation – imagination runs wild! So even though plans should be adapted – the goal is stays the same.

I was born in Russia, in 2009 moved to the UK where currently living. Moving to another country had a huge impact on my life: inability to share experiences and impressions with my family kind of forced me to restrain my feelings. That’s why you can notice two ideas in my work: on one hand, I’d like to show the world and share what impressed me, and on the other hand photography is my way of splashing out personal emotions through abstraction.
