About the project:
Lakes was shot in the winter of early 2014 and is a visually poetic and atmospheric selection of monochrome photographs shot on 35mm film using a vintage Minolta camera. Both a study of the local landscape and a heartfelt family portrait, it documents Lily, the artists sister, throughout the period of that winter during their travel in Englands Lake District. Visually poignant and delicate, the series evokes a connection to rural nature, and strikes a contrast in relation to other works by Vasilisa which have explored technology vs organic life and culture.
Artist’s bio:
“Vasilisa is an internationally published and exhibited visual artist and photographer. She has been shortlisted for the Bar-Tur Award and is a Sony World Photography Awards Commended and Shortlisted Photographer. Vasilisa self-published a photography book ‘In Silence Are Shadows’ at a young age which was promoted by Dazed Digital and Vision China. Her work has been selected by curators of BALTIC Contemporary Art Centre, Barbican, Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris and Saatchi amongst others.

Vasilisa’s practice employs the use of photography and mixed media collage to generate works which extend the dimensions of photography through the form of installation, fusing of opposing disciplines and superposition of visual information, to create an objectified form.

She has acted as a contributor to various UK-based magazines, works regularly with fashion and design brands and fashion editorial and has had works published across both regional and foreign publications as well as acting as Arts Editor to a London-based publication.”
