This story is about trying to cope with the traumatic memories of the past and my difficult relationship with my father.
My name is Yana Pirozhkova. I was born on 1986 in the village of Zaborye, Perm Krai. Having graduated from high school, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in architecture and worked as an architect in Perm and Yekaterinburg for the seven years that followed. In 2010, I moved to St. Petersburg, where I got into film photography. Right now, I am enrolled at Fotografika photo academy in St. Petersburg, while at the same time doing my personal photo projects.
