A Day With Elena Vasilieva


"I photographed stills and people and anything else that in my mind was worth taking a picture of (in Sochi, Russia). At the same time I tried to creatively direct a couple of shots of myself, where I asked my mother to press the shutter button. A couple of photos were shot with a self timer. I absolutely love modern cameras for giving you an option of using your iPhone for that. The most handy invention ever."

"I love taking self portraits. All of the images are meant to translate that relaxed, slightly detached vacation vibe where the surroundings are calm and serene, and are permanently coloured in sunset hues, while the rest of the world is obsolete at least for the time being."


"This was my day, or any other day, since they all seem to blend together when you are in that holiday mood."
