About her project says Natalia: This is a conceptual project about my inner garden. A place where I keep fragile memories of the past and lost moments. The suffocating city slowly destroys the nature around me. All that remains is memories, dried flowers and dead insects. I’m trying to create a ghostly garden in my imagination to preserve everything beautiful that I’ve seen. This project includes self-portraits and botanical illustrations created in the technique of scanning.
