Says Tatiana: My project is dedicated to one of my favorite genres of photography – night landscape. Since childhood, I liked to walk until late at night and admire the beautiful starry sky. Thanks to my camera, I can share with the viewer the fabulous atmosphere that I feel while walking around my native village. My town is located in the middle of nowhere in central Russia, near the source of the great Russian river Volga. Due to the fact that street illumination does not affect the brightness of the stars, I can fully demonstrate the beauty of the night sky through photography. I like to shoot our cozy streets and wooden houses, sometimes this story appears against the background of bizarre natural phenomena – light pillars, halo and others. But the most memorable was the shooting of the aurora, a very rare phenomenon for our latitudes.
