Inner garden

Posted on by Elizaveta Romanova

I've been concentrating on finding inner peace and happiness lately. Surprisingly, among the findings was the tendency in me to be an object of another's  subjective judgement instead of being a subject.

In other words, what's the use of trying to deserve someone else's approval, when I'm happier cultivating my garden according to my taste.

Go and see "Salt of the Earth" right now, seriously.
I've seen the works of Sebastião Salgado before, but the backstories he tells, the cinematography, the tactful direction by Wim Wenders — all leave an even bigger impression. I thought I'd faint right in the auditorium, but went home with an imperative impulse to draw. 

So, here's what I got.

All the textures used are leather.

Here's the process.

PS: Mr Wenders also made the fabulous "Pina" — a brilliant non-invasive hommage to the great choreographer, also a must-see. 

Fake it 'till you make it

Mastering anything is easy: you suck for the first five years, then you suck a little less.

Day in, day out.

This year I was happy to start my photography path wit the Rodchenko Moscow School. As a thesis project, I made a series of photos in Tel Aviv.

I never get to know a new subject gradually and systematically, I get carried away by a part, then return to another and so on. Just like kids play. When I was walking around Tel Aviv, I tried to focus on architecture, or street life, or local people, and felt like a substantial part, the core, still was missing. It was all very chaotic. But then I found old photos at a flee market and saw that until that moment I had been looking for things on the outside. The photos I found showed me the inside part. They showed me that I had been tired and stressed and that I had been in need of a simple and innocent game, the one kids play.

I'll be posting many photos from Tel Aviv, but for today, here, have the thesis ones.
