Back to school: Alena Zhandarova

This is the story about a young girl, her attitude to life, time and space around her. Each photo of Alena Zhandarova has a different state, which at the end of the story creates a new complete picture. It is like a map, which helps not to forget, that fear and imperfection are small pieces of herself. And only through understanding and acceptance it is possible to find the right way. This series is about the moment, it is about what’s going on right now. About the question: “Why?” and answer: “Because accidents are not accidental.”

The Russian School of Alena Zhandarova teaches that there is always something happening around us. There are no unimportant moments. Each of them teach us something, each of them leave something very important behind all of us. It is like an artifact, that given by the keeper for the knowledge. “The smell of apples, the sound of dripping water, cornflower tea taste in a candy store of beloved city. Every moment. This series – is only a microscopic part of me. My moments. My life. It is for me. It is my artifact. And it is curious! Through such a deeply personal and intimate project, you can recognize yourself, find yourself artifacts, and live by yourself moments, curiously wondering at every moment: Do I really do want to do more than anything else in this planet?”.
