Kamilla Hanapova

Kamilla Hanapova is a photographer based in St. Petersburg, Russia. Specializing in portrait, beauty and architecture photography, Kamilla is a 2018 Hasselblad Master.

Kamilla always tries to say something, to express herself, to show ordinary things from a new point of view so that people can view them differently and open up a new way of thinking. She aspires to create her own reality according to how she personally sees it or how she would like reality to be.

"In general, I find my inspiration in installations, sculptures, performances, land-art, and paintings; in modern fashion, movies, books, and music; in astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology. From all of this diversity, I get an incredible dose of energy that fills me like nothing else."

Always in search of new techniques and ways to process images, Kamilla loves to change and connect various techniques in her work.
