Veronika Trubnikova, photoartist.
Moscow based artist born in Siberia (Russia). Rodchenko Art School graduated (2022). Have been actively engaged in photography since 2016. Use both digital and film cameras, prefer analog shooting in natural light.
Originally from Siberia, I have a multicultural background on that i rely into my work.
I assign an important role to the economy of narration in both visual and meaningful senses, leaving to the viewer a space for imaginative perception. Great importance I attach to the shooting space, often making the landscape a separate character.
In my photoprojects I explore topics related to the borders of territories and peoples. As an artist, I formulate my task in directing camera lens to where it is painful and unpleasant to look and in showing there is still some beauty in it.  If the artist looked at a complex topic and told about it, then it will become a little easier for the viewer to focus his attention and to reflect. So the world, even after a while, will get a little better.
Practice shooting portraits of various styles and trends.
