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 in 2020. 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 a person's emotional state became the basis for her work.
"Our world is wonderful and beautiful, it is full of magic. And this magic is in the feelings, emotions that man can feel looking at the beauty, being with Nature. I like to find these magical moments in the macro world.
You can see wild succulents and tiny herbs, mosses and lichens, shiny drops of rain, or morning dew in my photos. They can look so otherworldly and so wonderful! While taking photos I feel like I am tripping into another reality, but at the same time, it is the world around us. Macro is the way to see something beyond, is the way to open the vision. That's why I call my photo project My Psychedelic Garden." - says Etuvgi about her art.
WHO I AM
Macro-photographer who is absolutely in love with the beauty of our world.
