Here i would say magic, femininity, flowers. Julia Chernysheva, I told you I met unique people in Cyprus . Julia is a friend of a man I loved and I still love who is my grates teacher and toughest one. Who made me.Julia would come to Cyprus and I was responsible to organize her travel arrangements and entire stay in Cyprus. Once she gave a rose, that she draw during her stay , she said is you and signed. Year after year, we were becoming closer.
I will never forget a day, when I fall in love with a boy who never showed up , after first date . It was in January, snow, and me standing alone in the middle of the street, crying. Why, what? Love finally does not exist. I really did not know who to call, all my contacts left Moscow for New Year, and I called Julia. Within 20 minutes Julia came and picks me up, we had dinner together and I stay in her big and artistic apartment for whole week. We did different activities such as ice skating and laugh through tears, and not once.
Imagine you wake up in historical building ‘’Dom na Nabereznoi’’ with view on Kremlin, surrounded by paintings. I felt I am in Jardin de Fleur, or in kind of private visit gallery.
I would wake up and spend hours drinking coffee and looking at her art. Each one talked to me. Roses, Lilies, Peony , Tulips, Orchids, Narcissi ,Helleborous and other gifts of Special Garden were talking to me . One would say, ogh , is snowing again the white roses , orchids would say , I am your mistress , Paeonia- we know your dark side.
Her paintings and here you come my macro lens and me with the floral world hanging on the rock of Akamas Peninsula (Cyprus), trying to make the best photo of wild tulips.
During my next visit I photo shoot Julia, in her flat, at night. I wanted to capture her in her art space and definitely bring her gentle and yet hot self out o her.
Lately she inspires me with aquarelle paintings from her travel, the sea, the architecture, nature. I can read art, she is happy now as never before. She paints everywhere she go. I really will be happy to see soon her Japan emotions on paper, I am sure she will do great.
