Dasha Tischenko-Zhuravel




Artist Statement:

For me, Fashion photography is a tool. It is a tool among many other things that allows me to express myself, be creative and make a statement.

My photo works are always experiments with the sensual female body plastique with interspersed surreal ideas.

Behind each mask people wear, there’s deep personal story and particular individuality which I try to reveal through images, behavior, movements and emphasize them in my works.


Ukrainian photo-artist Dariya Tischenko-Zhuravel captures elaborate fashion portraits that appear to look like paintings.

Dariya is an incredible master in transmiting inner world, human emotions and energy through the prism of the camera lens. Images come to life in her photo, acquire new forms and expression..sometimes hidden under the surfaces of usual habits and masks…but behind each mask peole wear there’s deep story and particular individulity…Dariya tries to open it up and underline in her works.Dariya Tishchenko-Zhuravel lives and works in Kyiv, Ukraine.
