Mariia Chorman, a Ukrainian photographer based in Kiev, approaches photography with a gentle yet compelling touch. Her foundation in journalism has perhaps influenced a distinct documentary style — her photographs are not over enhanced or over saturated but precisely realistic and immensely captivating. They are cold toned with the model's striking green eyes reflecting the vibrancy of the tall grass surrounding her. Shot entirely in one setting, a secluded sphere for one model, we find ourselves invited into a pastoral environment where everything is at a stand-still, knowing outside the serene marsh land lies a world of chaos. There is something soothing and refreshing about Mariia’s series.
