Evgenia B., London, England.
Children and Portrait Photographer. Magic Places Editor.
I am a photographer. Children photographer. I do adults too, but curiously on my pictures they look like girls and boys they used to be, like children they remain somewhere inside.
I am a traveler. I get restless when I stay in one place for too long. I love getting to know new cities. I like to walk the city alone, trying to find its tune, to touch its soul. I take pictures, I talk to strangers, I forget who I am and where I came from. When I come back I feel new and a little surprised and happy. One day I’ll travel around the world, taking pictures of strangers along the way. Perhaps.
I am a people lover. I like watching the early crowd on the tube, their faces full of childish expectation. I like sitting in a cafe, staring at strangers as they pass by, imagining who they are, what they like to do and who they love.
I am a dreamer. I read books in the train on my way to work listening to Frank Sinatra and Norah Jones. I dance when no one is watching. I use Internet to look for beautiful pictures.
I am a mum. I have two little sons, funny, curious and very talkative chaps. We learn, we play Princess and Knights (I am the Princess as you might guess:), we grow together in every sense. All parents do. We travel places. Sometimes we go somewhere I love, sometimes we go somewhere new. My boys make me see things, they make me change angle, they offer me new perspective.
Yes, I am a London addict. I know no other city so splendid and so full of life, despite its low grey sky and annoying rain (sorry, Vira-the-rainlover!). This city has many faces, it’s young regardless of age. It is my soul place, my place of inspiration.
These are some things I will write about. See you here soon:)
