Suilad, mellyn!
 I'm costume designer, photographer, traveller and cultural studies researcher.
My art philosophy in two words is creating legends.
 I'm not just taking photos - I make photos, depicting moments of myths, legends and history. To make them
real I create costumes, accessories, prepare hair and make up. I want to breath the new life in old stories. By costume photography you can travel to the past, future or otherworld and face with our own myths and legends from the dephs of our personality. You can see results of my photo-projects at my web-page:

  I'm independent traveller since 2005. During my numerous travels from Siberia to Europe I searched for the spirit of old celtic and scandinavian legends. I found them in Iceland, where the folklore is still alive. The land looks like Tolkien`s masterpiece - Middle-Earth. That's why I make this big art-project that combines all my skills: photography, costume, cultural studies and travel:      
                                          
                                                             "Journey to Middle-Earth"

 People, who are fond of Tolkien world and north-european folklore are joining me and travel across Iceland to the places that are from Middle-Earth. I prepare special costumes to make photo-shoots, use some elements of LARP-games as the new art form (game like creation of new reality, in which person live like one of characters from the book). This is not a trip or holiday, it's journey through time and dimension.
 I've travelled to Iceland in 2015 and 2016 for 2 and 4 weeks,  researching the place, seeking for inspiration, places for shoot, learning about nature, climate, culture and people and making cultural research. It's a huge work that is paid only by myself. I've made concept of art-project, costumes and photoshoots that you can see in my blog after becoming patron. Now I prepare the next Journey in 2017 to Iceland - to make this unique quest, to open the doors to Middle-Earth.

To make it in one person it`s quite hard as it's not official job, but the art-project. If you support my art, you will see the results of my work - as pre-production, during the trip and post-production process and will be the part of the miracle!

Information for those, who want to join in 2017 - you can ask technical info by message at facebook and a lot of news will be here so join my page and stay in touch!
