''British Journal of Photography'' magazine
So happy to share wonderful news!
My project 'Road to Petergof'' has been published in so important for me ''British Journal of Photography'' magazine.
Thank you so much Marigold Warner !
Feeling tied to this history that was so embedded in the land that she had frequently trodden herself, in March 2015, Vasilyeva began working on Road to Petergof, a project that explores the historical significance of the road as well as its relation to her own identity. Earlier this year, Vasilyeva self-published the project, and was then shortlisted for the 2019 Kassel Dummy Award.
The aesthetic of Road to Petergof is nostalgic and, at times, melancholic. Shot in square format film and in cold colour tones, the path of the road subtly dominates each image, intending to symbolise the inevitable direction of the road of life. «I think long-term personal projects can say a lot about the character of the photographer and their attitude to life,» Vasilyeva reflects.
