ILONA D.VERESK

Fashion, beauty and advertising photographer. Currently in Moscow

I was born in Izhevsk (Small city of Russia) in 1993, where I finished the Art lyceum. When I was 18 years old I moved to Moscow to make my dreams come true. The decoming a photographer was not an edge of my dream, my camera was lying covered with a dust up to 2013 but my mind is always full of fantasy and I always find a way how I can use it. I started my path in visual artistry from photomanupulations. However I always wanted to get more control of my images, make them more qualitative and unique. This is the thing that pushed me to work with the photography. The first time I worked in studio with my friends I sew costumes and make some props for them. Some of the pictures (dark and surreal art) were represented on my debut personal exhibition in Moscow, "Victims" in November 2015. After all I changed my approach and attitude to the photography. It was the time when I started to work with high fashion projects as a photographer, producer and art director. I get an inspiration from nature. In dense morning fogs, in colorful meadows, in murky swamps, in majestic mountains and bitter berries.

My process in the photography is not just a clicking on the button. I work as an art director and a producer of my own surreal fairy tales, I work by myself with light, pre- and post production. Sometimes I make clothes and accessories for my art shoots. Currently I make an advertising photography for different brands, lookbooks and campaigns, fashion and beauty editorials for magazines. Since 2017 I’ve been supported with such strong companies like Broncolor and Wacom.
