As a former ballet dancer, body language has always been one of my biggest passions. That is why the figure plays such a significant role in my photography. I often observe and capture its curves in an abstract and surreal manner, seeking to emphasize the body as a sculptural composition element. The distortion of its shapes blurs the line between reality and illusion, natural and artificial. By hiding and revealing parts of it, I try to create a mystical world that leaves open questions for the observer. I view rebirth, creation and metamorphosis as the core of human identity and aim to incorporate them in my work through floral motives.
ABOUT
Viktoria Andreeva is a fine-art photographer focused on the body as the main composition element. The distortion of the figure aims to blur the line between reality and illusion, natural and artificial. She plays with elemental and symbolic opposites which contradict each other at first glance. Her work seeks to connect and communicate with the viewer - to open up a field for interpretation of the narrative. As a former ballet dancer, Viktoria’s love and passion for the art of movement have deeply influenced her aesthetic.
Born and raised in Bulgaria, in 2015 she moved to Vienna, where she pursued a degree in Photography and Audiovisual Media at the College of Arts Die Graphische. During her studies, she began her work on one of her biggest projects so far - a book depicting the many faces of ballet. This work contains photographic work focused on six ballet dancers from the Vienna State Opera alongside interviews and insight into their world.
