I am Daria Amaranth, photographer from Russia. I like creating mysterious stories with melancholic atmosphere; such stories which can be breathtaking or filled with silence. As a rule I create series of works, where all the pictures (as episodes in a movie) tell some enigmatical story one by one. I like the contradictory mood in pictures: when colours and tones are calm but the atmosphere is disturbing – the same concerning emotions of the characters: cold but sensual mood.
