1/365  by kriskashtanova


I struggled a lot with comparison, an impostor syndrome, fear that people I love would reject me because of my art and the way I am.

I started photography because I enjoyed it and saw it as a way to connect with like-minded kindred souls. I'd like to get back to why I started.

I joined 365 Project today and I’ll create and share with you little bits of me every day for a year. I know I’ll doubt myself occasionally, and that some images won’t be my best work, as I was so busy in the past year that my photography took a back seat and now I’m a bit rusty. But I can promise you that I’ll give my all.

Here’s my first image and a bit about where I come from. I was born in a small village Uchkeken in North Caucasus, surrounded by mountains, rivers, and lots of animals. My childhood was free and wild. When I turned 16 years old I moved to Moscow to study Software Engineering and have lived in big cities ever since. I lived in Moscow, London, and currently live in New York City. I love nature most of all and long for it. At the moment when there are fires everywhere, my heart hurts for our planet and I want to make a change.

I’d love to hear where you are from and where you live. Tell me something about what you love.

I am from New Zealand. we just had floods, it is winter here and this coast is known to be wet, but they say climate change produced this 100 year flood.
