Katerina Belkina - paints with her camera

Modell, artist, creator and spectator. Katerina Belkina is looking for a place in the world with her special, painting-like photos.
The 42-year-old Katerina Belkina is one of the most extraordinary Russian photographers; no photographer whose pictures would be closer to painting than she.
Born into an artistic family, his mother had also dealt with the visual arts. Katerina worked for a publisher company during his studies and was a graphic designer in a TV channel. She started to study photography in 2000, but in 2007, she has been nominated for the Russian Kandinsky Prize, and in 2009 participated in the first Biennial of Photography in St. Petersburg Marble Palace. In 2015 she was awarded the International Lucas Cranach Prize, and won the 2016 Hasselblad Masters Awards.

The LensCulture, one of the most prestigious art portal writes about the series: "Katerina Belkina's work can be considered an enormous resolution of how humanity looking for their own place in the society and culture of a large whole. Belkina is almost always self-model, and this shows that she en bloc can be identified with her universal mission. Her series 'Paint' shows you how to stay true to yourself as a visual artist, besides winning inspiration from the great painters of the past. Belkina borrows her brush from the 19th and 20th century painters, that can take her as close to them as possible. She sees great creative force in tension and interaction between the artist and her model, but she identiefies herself not only with the masters, but she also take the role of the artists' models, so she's not only an observer, but a participant in this interaction."

Pictures of 'Paint' remind us style and topic of grait painters like Degas' ballet dancers, Schiele's acts or Malevic's colorful geometric shapes, but we can also mention Gaugin, Frida Kahlo, Tamara de Lempicka or Rousseau.
