Ilona D. Veresk is a fashion & fine art photographer who currently resides in Moscow. Born in 1993, she grew up in Izhevsk (Small city of Russia), where she finished the Art-Aesthetic lyceum. When she was 18 years old she moved to Moscow. She started her path in visual artistry from photomanupulations. However she always wanted to get more control of the images, make them more qualitative and unique. This is the thing that pushed her to work with the photography. Some of her first photographs (dark and surreal art) were represented on debut personal exhibition in Moscow, "Victims" in November 2015. After all she changed approach and attitude to the photography. It was the time when she started to work with high fashion projects as a photographer, producer and art director. "I get an inspiration from nature mostly. However if you want me to describe my style, I'd like to call this kind of mixing dreams, art and fashion with love.

Ilona works as an art director and a producer of her own surreal fairy tales, she works by herself with light, pre- and post production. Sometimes she makes clothes and accessories for personal art projects. Currently she involved in commercial activity as art, fashion and ad photographer. Ilona has also been fortunate enough to receive a number of sponsorships and accolades; she is supported by Broncolor and Wacom. Content collaboration with Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. Also has multiple workshops and own educational programs for Re:Store academy and Academy Of Photography in Moscow. Recently she is also writing photography and retouch themed articles for Broncolor GenNext and her personal blog
