Elipa (Elipa Killovna) is a young and creative artist living in Moscow.
Autodidact photographer, playing with colors as B&W and never in lack of inspiration, it's only in summer 2005 that she suddenly found her vocation, "her all-life dream" : be an artist. Who could believe it, viewing her work, already so personal...
It's the picture above who attracted me. Beyond the elegance of the pose, the wonderful tones and the great composition, I found this melancholic (maybe vintage) touch I like so much in the russian artists' works.
"Obscurity of time"
