Ukrainian twins Tanya and Zhenya Posternak have become a household name in fashion photography through their ongoing work relationship with cult accessory brand Mansur Gavriel.
The 27-year old sisters moved to New York City three years ago, starting to collaborate with numerous fashion magazines including ACHE Magazine, Vogue Ukraine, Girls On Film and Anthem Magazine. Known for their close-up shots, soi-disant “Posternak crop”, the two photographers are staying as close to the essence of their subject, resulting in a rather unusual yet elegant focus. The photographic style can be described as minimalist, colorful, and full of their unique sense of humor, becoming more and more attention on social media. Their 50,000 followers on Instagram are daily supplied with pictures of side boobs, the Lower East Side and Soviet throwbacks. Creating unique imagery, the twins have an affinity for colors, textures and architecture. Zhenya tends to be more bold and ironic, whereas Tanya focuses on nuances. They say they are in a constant search for visual and verbal extravaganza, random beauty and inspiring people.
