Artist’s Statement

The creative process is to put the puzzle together. I catch the pieces and patterns which are hidden in plain sight. This moment of insight is very exciting and guiding. Now I have to shape, create, materialize the idea.

The main thing for me is not a method or technique of execution, but a vision. Photography is a tool, I tell my story with their help like words. Then this story is yours, it allows you to see my Universe or look into your own.

About

Eva Vasilyeva is a Russian born and Paris, France based visual artist working in photography, graphic, and text. Eva grew up in a photography environment, with parents and a grandfather as photographers. With 12 years, the young girl gets her first film camera FED-5 (a Russian model based on Leica camera).

As a commercial photographer, she started in 2012 in Venice, Italy. In parallel, she moved towards a contemplative photography approach for self-fulfillment. She explores the hand printing methods with authorial modifications.

Eva’s artwork is about relations between reality and its perception. She aims to find and show hidden metaphors that are half immersed in the object and half extended in us. Being passionate about literature, she mixes and combines the creative techniques of verbal and visual art.

LensCulture review

Eva Vasilyeva is a talented photographer with high aesthetic criteria and a restless spirit. Eva’s series is excellent in every way and, believe me, I have said this only a few times. Images have high technical and artistic quality, the atmosphere is unique, diptychs are successfully structured, and conceptually there is more than one interpretive level. The personal character of her work is obvious and becomes its most crucial feature increasing its authenticity.

Eva has the gift, the intuition, and the knowledge to create a remarkable personal work and make it widely known if she continues shooting with the same passion, leave herself to be visible in her work (I speak metaphorically), and continue to invest in storytelling as regards the building of series. Overall, my engagement with Eva’s work was an exciting and pleasant experience. Be sure that I will show her project to my students for many reasons. I wish Eva Vasilyeva good luck, and I’m looking forward to seeing more from her in the future.
