Photochat: Maria Kazvan

Categorised as ART., PHOTOGRAPHY.

Who are you? 
I am Maria Kazvan, 22 years old. I live in Lviv, Ukraine and study journalism, this is my last year at uni.

How long have you been taking photos for?
I have been shooting only for three years, it’s a really small amount of time and these are just the first steps.

What equipment do you use?
I am using Minolta xd-11 + minolta 55\1,7 lens.

What made you start shooting?
I started shooting because I needed to do something, photography fits my needs.

Who influences you?
I love Arthur Elgort, Annie Leibovitz and Richard Avedon. Besides photography,
paintings inspire me, I love works of Albert Lynch and James Tissot.

What are your ambitions for the future?
I hope I will be huge someday, like those amazing photographers who worked whole their lives and now we look at their works and they inspire us. I want somebody someday to look at my photos and say “this is great”. But before that I need to work hard and think a lot.

Anything else?
I wanted to say that the most important thing in photography for me,
is the fashion: a picture must be alive. I love the fashion of the 80s and 90s because when you look at those women you know what is going on outside of the frame, but you believe in what you see in the frame, and all these “human” things, like smiles, it all helps, it makes everyone feel happy, I guess.
