  • Introduce yourself. Hi! My name is Alena and I have two miracles in my life: my son and photography. 
  • How long have you been into photography? I’ve been doing it professionally since 2012, however, was playing around with the film camera since 2009. I was always into “pictures”.

  • How would you describe yourself to people who don’t know you? I’m a very honest and straightforward person.
  • Describe your work in three words. Fantasy, beauty and a bit of craziness.

  • What’s your personal credo? I stole it from Ray Bradbury: “Everyone must leave something behind when he dies . . . Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die . . . It doesn't matter what you do, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away.”
