The Nude Canvas

You know how sometimes when you meet someone who hears your inner secrets without ever asking the questions?

This is what happened on 25th of December 2015. He heard my soul. I forgot that there is a camera, restrictions and expectations. I longed for a connection like this with a photographer or an artist for a very long time.

Dmitriy Komarov has the ability to open all your cages that live within your silent layers. He brings them to life, not with his camera, but his energy. He allowed me to be me, without judgement. He brought me back to my youth… I laughed like I never laughed before in front of the camera… I would try to put on a mask, but knew right away, that he knows… there was no need for masks or locks, it was all stripped away and wide open… I felt safe… I felt safe to be me in front of him — the child, the woman, wild creature, actress, dancer and just a girl with a very loud laugh. And not for a second was he afraid of the energy that I let out of a cage…

Dima just kept capturing me LIVING multiple lives and souls in front of him. Cape Gloucester is savage and untouched, its energy echoes through to your every blood cell and nerve… You can’t help but to open up, forget what is “normal” or “acceptable” and just lose yourself in a beautiful dance with it… Hours went by and I could feel my body was getting tired, but my soul just kept dancing, kept running in and out of the water, waves kept washing off all the lies that were ever told to me by society, nothing was as pure and magical as this very moment. Dima allowed my soul to come out and play in front of his lens…

It was not a photo shoot… it was a dance! It was a story told by two souls and nature. Dmitriy and beautiful Cape Gloucester brought out the best and the most honest version of my life and all the years in it — The warrior, the child, the animal, the woman. Softness and roughness, peaceful and chaotic, sensual and innocent — he was able to capture it all. I will never forget that day, Dima’s energy and how blissfully happy I was at the end. I let it all out, screamed and laughed, danced and allowed myself to get completely lost. Dmitriy is by far, the best and the most honest photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

An artist, is the person who paints with his soul colorful stories on blank canvases. But if an artist have not truly Lived, Loved and Lost, his canvas will be really boring. Photography is not about what camera you have or what lens you use. To me, photography is a dance, a beautiful dance — The person behind the camera, person in front of it and the story that lives in the air between them…
