Irina Souiki, Toronto Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement
Irina is a self-taught artist whose passion for photography started at the age of thirteen when her uncle offered her a Smena 8M for her birthday. The camera has never left her since, although it has now been replaced by a Digital SLR as well as an ever growing collection of medium format, toy and instant cameras.
Irina's eye is caught by colourful and unique details of her surrounding space that are usually overseen. She holds a soft spot for abandoned places as their decaying beauty is bound to disappear.
She is sharing with the Imagekind community her most favorite photographs so that everyone enjoys them as much as she does.
