Profile de Kristine Sergejeva

Kristine Sergejeva

Coming from Riga, Latvia and living in Paris, France, at the moment.

The way i perceive the world is determined and defined by different ideas, concepts, dreams and experiences combining the background of my I - for example, my earlier philosophy studies, interest in global justice and concepts in general, cosmopolitanism, human rights, buddhism, feminism, permanent wish for self-development and self-creation and at the same time to change the world and make it better place. I wish that when spectators see my pictures they would get automatically a reference to something beyond everyday life - concepts, ideas and universals. That's why I go slowly and deeply into the world of abstract photography...

In search for my style I am swinging among three reference points: one is what I feel to be my style at the moment - dark abstractions and concept-driven visual search for parallel realities where the truth is to be found; another one is my idea about ideal representation of every image (I believe that every single image taken has in it's potential the ideal representation, which can be reached in the post-processing process); and finally one important for me reference point is what spectators expect to be as "genuine" and "good" photography and what they like (as I have this curse on me to like to be liked).

Have been taken photography classes by the Latvian b&w photographer Gunars Binde (Latvia); in the photo club "Riga"; digital post-processing classes (which certainly changed my photography style) in "Photopress Hungary" photo school, etc. (not all of these classes, though, were finished taking into consideration big gap between originally expected and in the reality received knowledge and inspiration)

But the most influencial experience up till now has been master classes by Alexander Gronsky (Russia) and Iveta Vaivode (Latvia), especially because Gronsky's photographies for me is the top of contemporary photography.

    Absolutely unbelievable. The first time I saw this image, I had the, well, "Wow" effect. Image composition and colors are fascinating.

  • Amazing gallery! The use of the Black and White combined with low light give to the subject a darkness which is deep. I suppose that you are using an argentic camera?
