Photo-based artist Uldus Bakhtiozina creates unique vision of Russian fairy tales. She focuses on pagans roots and ethnography of Russ Land. Her works are based on a thorough and detailed immersion into fairy tales, comprehensive research and comparison with Euro-Asian mythology. Artist pays special attention to ambivalent interpretation of the symbolism hidden in legends and myths.
The aim of the project is to use photography for telling stories that are unsaid, rewritten or distorted over many centuries. Each tale contains a lot of hidden messages. For example, in Russian fairy tales, princesses have ability to transform into animals like frogs, swans, snakes, etc.
Uldus invites her audience to speculate on the ambiguity and dualism of each character in Russian folklore.
