Valeriya Vygodnaya, Collaborator
Valeriya Vygodnaya is a Russian-born photographer, who lives and works in London and Paris. Her inspiration is based on theater, ballet, and cinematography. While traveling around the world, she collects impressions of different movements in contemporary art.
Valeriya’s musical and acting background helps her to explore and understand the psychology of the performer on the stage, in front of the camera and behind the scenes. She treats each shoot as an adventure and experiment, carefully prepared but leaving a space for a chance and very special “decisive moment.”
