LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Inna Etuvgi was born in 1982 in Chukotka (far North-East of Russia), where mosses and lichens are the basis of the local endemic, which later became the subject of photography and study of the author.
In 2005 Etuvgi graduated from the Faculty of Technical Cybernetics of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University with honors and a master's degree. Later technical education helps the author to learn photography by herself. Despite the lack of art education, macro photography became the author's ideal way to express her feelings and view of the world.
A creative experiment has always been an essential part of the artist's life. And an observation of the beauty of nature and analysis of its influence on the emotional state of a person became the basis for her work.
"In modern life, people often don't notice small details, but they are full of magical beauty. Often those details are so tiny that simply can't be seen with naked eyes. But we, human beings, are really wonderful and powerful creatures, we extend our bodies with different mechanisms that make our life easier and possibilities wider. And I use one of such extensions for my art - it is Macro-objective.
The target of my photo-art is to show people how wonderful and beautiful our world is, showing this beauty in very small details. You can see wild succulents and tiny herbs, mosses and lichens, shiny drops of morning dew, and rain, which can make your fantasy fly and help you to forget at least for a short time about your worries.
I believe that our world is beautiful and full of magic and that human beings are one of the biggest wonders of our world." says Etuvgi about her art.
