Darja Bilyk is a talented self taught photographer and artist was born and raised in Moscow, Russia and currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Bilyk studied at Moscow City Pedagogical University and she has worked as a teacher at school, before she moved to Scotland. “Above all I love surrealism and I like to add some magical twist on my pictures”, Darja says.

I don’t frame myself as one genre photographer, I love landscape and stills but my most favorite will be sensitive portraits and adding a bit of magic to my pictures. Most of the times I work alone doing the make-up myself and giving the necessary clothes. I get a lot of inspiration from my dreams. And if it’s a nightmare then I create some dark pictures and it helps the nightmares to go away.
