Travelling without ever really settling down pushed Nina Koltchitskaia into photography, and gave her the desire to create her own universe.

Using only film cameras for all of her projects, Nina favors the authenticity of the film to digital photography. Grain and dust from the film tells an additional story for each photograph Nina creates.

The process of surprise and mystery makes each photo more unique. Nina's passion for drawing and video-making developed later, but her drawn portraits or videos with frozen faces intend to express the same mixture of proximity and distance - between feelings of others and her own private emotions.
