Uldus Bakhtiozina is a Russian photo based artist. She was born in 1986, Saint Petersburg, Russia (former Leningrad of USSR). Despite of the modern technology level she prefers an analogue camera instead of digital to catch the nature of an object, show its deepest edges and soul beneath them. All around objects, costumes, make-up and outfit are produced by her own to fill the story behind each photograph with her vision and imagination. Her works are mixed of real stories and art vision, she creates photography with full respect to an aesthetic, focusing on balancing meaningful message and beauty.
