Born in Moscow, Russia, Evgenia Kayumova instigates nuanced emotions through a combination of portraiture and fashion photography. Her dreamily-hued photos communicate a sense of calm and isolation, in which delicate lighting, immaculate compositions, and natural backgrounds take center stage.
Observing the world around her, Kayumova came into her own photographic oeuvre around seven years ago, slowly turning what was a hobby into a successful profession. Like many in her field, Kayumova has an image that is distinctive to her, and one that makes a lasting impression. The now Krasnodar-based photographer follows spontaneous bursts of inspiration, but cites nature and minimalism as her main resources, both of which have helped her develop her ethereal visual language and unique eye for detail. Across her images, a palpable sense of female identity is explored through the splendour of nature. Beautifully lit and styled, her photographs of women in natural landscapes evoke a feeling of otherworldliness as well as a relentless quest of escapism and peace. A curated sampling of Kayumova’s artistry is found below.
