Setting yourself apart from other talented designers or photographers can be difficult; it helps to have a certain focus or eye for something unusual and beautiful.
Designer Maria Snegireva honed her professional skills while working on fashion and lifestyle magazine Marie Claire UA, and she embarked out on her own in 2010. She knew her Photoshop skills would enhance her imagery and creations, but it took a vision for dream-like photo collages to turn her fantasy into a reality.
Look closely at Maria’s art and you’ll discover a delightful blend of the real and the imaginary. Every photo is magical and bright, with the aid of vintage effects. Human models are incorporated into her artwork to complement the natural and dreamlike settings. What results is a unique style that borrows elements from fairy tales and other feel-good narratives.
