    From My Project: Synesthetic Letters

    Anna is red, and Mary is deep dark blue. Since I was a kid, I found it very easy to remember people's names and was very surprised when others had problems with it. Just because each name has always had a specific color, usually the color of its initial. Naturally, I thought that everyone in the world had the same experience in their mind's eye: colored letters, digits, names of months, days of the week, etc. It wasn't until 2 years ago when I realized that no, not everyone was like that and what I had was a form of synesthesia—an extraordinary sensory condition that allows you to experience one of your senses through another. Some synesthetes hear, smell, taste, or feel the music in color. Others taste shapes, and still, others perceive written digits, letters, and words in color. This last one is what I and my friend and collaborator Jane Kristoferson have. It's also the most common one, known as "graphemic synesthesia." While different individuals usually do not report the same colors for all letters and numbers, studies with large numbers of synesthetes find some commonalities across letters (e.g. A is likely to be red). A number of artists, writers, and scientists had synesthesia, among them Vincent Van Gogh, Wassily Kandinski, Vladimir Nabokov, Nicola Tesla, etc. Some synesthetes are reported to have learned how to apply their ability in daily life and work, for example, have used their abilities in memorization of names and telephone numbers, mental arithmetic, and more complex creative activities like producing visual art, music, and theater.

    So we see the world a bit differently. With this fun project, we want to share our experience with the world and try to remind people that there can't be just one "right" way of seeing things in this world.

    What my art is about?

    I explore the topics of emotions, relationships, self-discovery, and redefining oneself. Each photograph that you see here will take you on a journey into a character’s soul and at the same time, probably, will make you think of the events and things in your life that impacted you the most and maybe turned out to be life-changing.

    What kind of feeling does it bring to your home?

    Peace and tranquility. Strength and confidence. A grain of melancholy. With a bit of a whim, mystery, and fantasy. It will always be a gentle and quiet reminder that nothing is what it seems and you should always go deeper to perceive the true meaning.

    How I work

    I choose muted tones, strictly organized compositions, clean minimalistic spaces, and lots of symbolism to convey my ideas. Each visual story here has a definite plot but is always open to interpretation.

    My Process

    Each photo takes from 1 week to several months of planning and preparations: thinking through the story and the plot, planning the color scheme, sketching, scouting for locations, creating the props, choosing the suitable wardrobe, looking for the right makeup and hairstyle looks and then blending it all together. In most cases, a whole team is involved in the shooting process. I never use stock imagery to create my art, I shoot all the details myself right there on location. After the shooting is done, post-processing of a single image takes on average 5-7 hours in Lightroom and Photoshop.

    About Prints

    I choose the most eco-friendly and sustainable materials to create my prints because I care for the world we live in. All the works are printed on museum-quality Hahnemühle Bamboo FineArt paper (290 gsm, 90% bamboo fibers, 10% cotton) and are Giclée prints with life expectancy up to 200 years. All fine art prints are hand-signed by me (on the front and on the back) and come with a certificate of authenticity. All unframed prints have a 3cm (1.2 in.) border.

    Your print is professionally packaged by a fine-art printing studio with 40 years of experience and shipped by premium delivery services (UPS or DHL). Unframed prints are shipped wrapped in bubble wrap in a reinforced cardboard tube. Your artwork will arrive at its new home safe and sound.
