Everything in the world contains its opposite, nothing can exist without it, like light without a shadow, like truth without a lie, like an illusion without reality - all these concepts are not only connected with each other, but also inseparable from each other.
Maria Ogorodnokova (Russia), is a photographer based in Rostov-on-Don. She loves black and white photographs. Color photographs reflect reality. Black and white photos reflect the soul.
She loves the work of Elliot Erwitt more than anything, who turned the world of photography before and after. There are no colors, no processing, nothing fake. She is against the processing of photographs, which changes the appearance of people, beauty is in shortcomings, not in virtues. She wants to show that all people are beautiful, to tell their story with her work.
