Real and surreal photography by Vika Palatova

August 28, 2012

I spend hours and hours sometimes looking at photography in flirck and pinterest. It’s just amazing how much talent there is out there. I keep finding talented unknown photographers that inspire me and give me ideas about what to try. And, because sharing is one of the underlying reasons behind this blog, I’ve decided to start a new category in VFCH named ‘Weekly artist review’. It’s not meant to be a review, exactly, but rather a weekly repository to share the beauty that I’ve found during the week.

Surreal photography by Vika Palatova

To start with this new section I wanted to introduce you to the photography of Vika Palatova. Vika is a talented amateur photographer from Russia. Her photography is full of energy and she is amazing at capturing female beauty, feelings and emotions. Also, one of the most striking things that you’ll find in her flirck gallery is her surreal photography. She has the most ingenious and imaginative ideas, from flying objects and women on fire, to bodies in impossible positions.

Just judge for yourself. I’ve selected a few photos to show here but you can visit her flirck account for more. However, I believe this is just the very beginning of what is sure to be a successful career. She’s been practicing photography for only a few years now, and more importantly, are you ready for this?… She’s only 16 years old!! Do you believe it?
Congratulations for your work, Vika. Please keep up with it. We’ll be keeping tabs on you!
