Alexandra Zhidkikh: In My Room

Alexandra Zhidkikh: In My Room
International Photography Grant 2019

This is a simple photo set about the beauty in everyday life, the naturality, and self-acceptance – nude women in their own rooms, without embellishments, touch-up, makeup, or studio light. The sources of inspiration surround us – a ray of light that falls from the window on your friend’s shoulder in the semi-darkness of the room is a masterpiece that will only exist for a minute until she changes her pose or the sun rises higher. I wanted to catch that very moment in the ordinary life that becomes a piece of art all of a sudden. I love it that the poses of the models in some photos allude to the paintings of the Renaissance artists. We are real, different, beautiful and imperfect, and we do not have to conform to the beauty standards imposed on us in order to inspire.

Alexandra Zhidkikh – an amateur photographer from Russia based in Belgrade, Serbia. Her models are mostly friends and people from social networks.
