Mysterious Russian Soul

  • Photographer
    Uldus Bakhtiozina

"Mysterious Russian Soul", this work represents all stereotypes the world could've think about russians: oil baths, loads of meat, gold, stones, incomprehensibility. Eyes are widely open illustrating the openness of russians, but symbolism illustrates the complexity of the whole nation, mixed with ethnical groups, religions, nationalities, not fully understood by others, not fully accepted by ourselves. We have named our souls "mysterious" and it has to be illustrated. Analogue photography no digital manipulation all within the work is made by myself: outfit, mask, setting on the photo is female model
