Polina Plotnikova – starting with a blank Canvas

They say that a photographer is either a picture taker, or a picture maker…
… and Polina is firmly in the picture makers’ club. While fully appreciating the “what you see is what you get” approach, she is much more interested in chasing an ever-elusive image that appears in her mind’s eye, an image that conveys her feelings and emotions, rather than remains a mere statement of fact.

“Flowers and still life are my favourite photography subjects. Still life in particular is perfect for a perfectionist like me – no one fidgets or makes faces, no sudden gust of wind or some other quirk of ever-changing weather can spoil your shot. The approach to flower photography that I take is somewhat similar to that of a portrait photographer – for every flower and plant that I photograph, I always try to find its unique look, study its mood and character, and ultimately unlock the hidden beauty of my models.”
