Interview with photographer Katerina Pasnichenco

About you:
What is it that attracts you the most of what you have around you? 
- Actually, very often i feel myself like an out-of-time person, attracted to some old-fashioned style of life. That's why, i spending a lot of time searching for some old films at different web-pages. But, unfortunately, time machine hasn't been invented, so i'm trying to see the beauty in ordinary things around me. Especially wild nature and people. 

Tell us about your experience as photographer what did it give you?
- I have been doing photography for more than 6 years. During that time I have tried a lot of things and techniques, 'cause i simply love it. I was trying to understand the nature of making photos. By the way, it created my individual special style. I have experience as a commercial photographer and creating artistic work. I tried to shoot nature, objects, portraits.
