Meet Eugenia, a young student from Moscow, Russia. Photography is mainly just a hobby of hers, but we felt we had to show you some of her work as the fact she isn’t a photographer makes it even better. She has such raw and natural talent without even trying, and the mood you find in her work sometimes gives you goosebumps. She tells us a bit about herself here…
“My name is Eugenia Gor, I’m from Russia, Moscow, I’m 20 years old. I study at university and I’m in my fourth year. In my spare time I photograph and I like it very much. However, I don’t do it constantly just from time to time. I don’t go around with my camera specially, expecting that something suddenly will occur. No. When there is a suitable mood and if I see something interesting in my opinion, I will photograph it. I love and enjoy beautiful images, so you want to photograph and keep them, then quietly enjoy and share with others. Also I like to photograph some moments of my life “for memory”.
“I use analog Zenit-E. When I was 16 I found it on a dusty shelf (it previously belonged to my grandfather). I like to use film cameras for the several reasons; mainly because the quality of pictures turn out surprising, which is something digital cameras can’t do easily. The result depends on it, and it is always unpredictable! You have no preview screen, and you will only know what you do when you develop it. It intrigues me, What inspires me? It can be so many different things: other photos from different people, movies, music, books, parents, stories of friends, nature and unexpected moods that arise from any trifles (a good cup of coffee, the imperceptible passer-by, memories of something.. etc .) “
“I shoot photos which, first of all, pleasure me and that are natural. I want to show to other people that beauty which I see in some things, people, situations. Also in what is happening around me, feelings and moods in my photos can change from kindness and the peace to bewilderment. I like to try and be quite ambiguous. I don’t aspire to make the works known, I don’t think it’s necessary to me yet. But it is great to know that others like it too. In the future, there are no huge plans about my hobby with photography, but inside I feel like I’ll be more involved in it, I’ll give a little more time. To me it is very interesting.”
“Ideally, if I have enough worthy opinions to my work, I would like to show it to other people through some of exhibition. I still have work to do, but I’m glad that I have all these possibilities.”
