Russian fairy tales is immense and sometimes contradictory world of Slavic folklore, with a large number of linear and horizontal plots, characters, who are strange and paradoxical in their actions, with dual morality, which can be totally lost at some point. Artist and photographer Uldus Bakhtiozina from St. Petersburg, Russia revamps the image of Russia’s best loved fairy-tale characters and symbols of russian culture through her photo project, called “RUSS LAND” . She does not simply copy illustrations with ancient Russian dress and wear the obvious kokoshnik (headdress). She refines these images, adds her own vision and value. In core of that crafting lays analysis of Russian folklore in a different ironic way, but with all the respect to origins. The main rule is to create a picture close to its nature without using any graphic editors or retouch tools. To highlight greater past, all photographs made with medium format camera and Kodak film. That’s why they are so realistic, even illustrating supernatural, they make us believe that all these creatures are existing near by….maybe they really are…
RUSS LAND project gains to remind about the symbolism hidden in legends and myths of slavic culture, make forgotten culture to live a new life. Most of the costumes, masks and headpieces (kokoshniks) are hand made by the artist.
