Ilona D. Veresk personal


Ilona D. Veresk is a fashion & fine art photographer who currently resides in Moscow. Born in 1993, she grew up in Izhevsk (Small city of Russia), where she finished the Art-Aesthetic lyceum. When she was 18 years old she moved to Moscow. She started her path in visual artistry from photo manipulations and painting. Finally, she was influenced in photography as the best ways to realize her ideas: "Photography combines my warm love to all visual and handmade". The most popular themes in her work are Russian and Slavic folklore, mentality, society and personality, artist in a modern world, a psychology of relationships, exploration of materials and combining different styles and epochs, self-cognition, irony. She makes a claim about herself on personal exhibition in Moscow in November 2015.

Ilona: "Informational silence! This is the thing I'm trying to reach in my artworks. Every day, minute, second the modern person has surrounded by the cocoon of brands and news. Even if you want to buy ketchup, you will have to look at tomato fields, and read the stories full of pathos about "our tomatoes are the most red-ripest". I don't want to glorify redness and Pantone of tomatoes in my art. I'm about the harmony of coexistence of a human, nature, and consciousness. A utopia after tomato apocalypse."

Currently involved in the commercial activity like art, fashion and advertising photographer. Ilona works as an art director and a producer of her own surreal fairy tales, she works by herself with light, pre- and post production. Sometimes she makes clothes and accessories for personal art projects. Ilona has also been fortunate enough to receive a number of sponsorships and accolades; Broncolor and Wacom. Content collaboration with Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. Also multiple workshops (MSU, Re:store academy) and own educational program for Academy Of Photography in Moscow. Recently she is also writing photography and retouch themed articles for Broncolor GenNext and her personal blog
