New York model Anastasiia Chorna did a total 180 for us by going behind the camera, shooting new season women’s sportswear on Odessa Beach in Ukraine. Snaps were snapped, kebabs were exchanged, and she even gave out her phone number for the sake of art.
“Not so long ago I started seeing beauty in everyone, no matter gender or age. I see kindness and sometimes catch a little spark in people’s eyes, which I believe is their soul speaking back to me.
So I met this guy Anton Belinskiy. I love his taste (and he’s a great person). He gave me a bag of female sportswear, in fact his Pre-Spring 2016 collection, and told me to go shoot something… “I trust you” he said.
I’m a model but lately have enjoyed the excitement of being behind the camera for once. So my first project lay before me, strange men in female apparel, shot on Odessa beach. Because everyone can be an artist right?
I found that I have tons of fears, and also discovered that when people are afraid, they joke to relax.
Here is what I’ve done. Enjoy.” – Anastasiia.
