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 art lyceum. When I was 18 years old I moved to Moscow to make my dreams come true. Becoming a photographer was not an edge of my dream, my camera lying covered with a dust up to 2013, but my mind is always full of fantasy and I always find a way where 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 which pushed me to work with photography. The first time I worked in studio with my friends, I sew a costumes and make some props for them. Some of the pictures (dark and surreal art) was represented on my debut personal exhibition in Moscow, "Victims" in November 2015. After all I changed my approach and attitude to photography. It was a time when I started to work with high fashion projects as photographer, producer and art director. I've found an inspiration in nature. In the dense morning fogs, in colorful meadows, in the murky swamps, in majestic mountains and bitter berries.

My process in photography is not just a clicking on button. I work as art director and producer of my own surreal fairy tales, I work by myself with light, pre- and post production. Sometimes I do clothes and accessories for my art shoots ( it called @Xaumae). Currently, I do advertising photography for different brands, lookbooks and campaigns, fashion and beauty editorials for magazines. Since 2017 I have a support of such strong companies like Broncolor and Wacom.
