The project ”Fern Flowers” consists of several separate series connected by one element - a magic fern. According to  the Slavic legend, an  unusual phenomen takes place during the shortest night of the year - ferns begin to bloom.

About Ma’am Butterfly:

Pearls are the only gemstones that come from a living creatures. They are created by mollusks such as oysters and mussles as the result of a defense mechanism. When an irritant gets inside mollusks, they begin to cover it with thousands of layers of nacre to separate themselfs from this particle.

An irritant was usely a parasite, not a grain of sand as many people think. The idea that the core of a pracious, perfectly beautiful pearl is a gross worm… Natural pearls, created without human interference, are very rare these days, but man, driven by his greed of beauty, has found a way to make mollusks produce them.

Cultured pearls are a result of the deliberate implantation of an irritant inside oysters and mussles. This process of creating pearls is the closest metaphor of me and the place that photography plays in my life and found in the world of nature.
