About The Artwork

My whole artistic life is based on three fundamental things for me: love for dogs, for the history of art (in particular, portraits) and for music. In this very particular period I'm experiencing all my senses are "sharpening" even more…. I feel even more attachment to my dogs because their love is one of the few certainties I have left. The music I've been listening to all my life… it too is starting to sound different, much more incisive and meaningful…. The portrait? The only thing I really want to do is where I can best express myself. And here it's: the collection of 20 photographic portraits I took of my adorable whippet Rubelia during the 3 most poignant years of my life (between 2020 and 2022). I called this collection “Greyhound, Music, Portrait. Variations on the theme. " In fact, there is a theme: the DOG (Rubelia). Then there are 19 variations: looks, shots, accessories that change giving a different "sound" to my love. In short, the variations from one portrait to another, exactly as happens in variations on a musical theme. To each portrait I have also associated music which in my opinion will give a more complete vision to my idea of this photo, since there is nothing I create without listening (or feeling inside me) a certain piece of music. Also because I think the gaze of a dog (the main thing in my photographic portrait) is like music: you cannot describe it with words, you can only “feel” it. This photo is printed on pictorial canvas (20x30cm). Try to observe it by listening to Scarlatti's Sonata in F Minor, K. 466 (L. 118) in the performance of Vladimir Horowitz. The canvas is finished with the handcrafted wooden frame.

Photographer specialized in dog & portrait photography. I was born in 1970 in Belarus. The best thing my country of origin has given me is music education. I studied in the Minsk conservatory as a pianist up to 24 years and even if I worked little as a musician; music is a very important part of my life. In 1995 I moved to Kiev (Ukraine). Here I started studying photography in the Fotomaster school of one of the most important Ukrainian photographers: Alex Abramov. I also studied under a great portrait photographer: Leonid Levit. In 2006 I got married and moved to Ravenna where I live with my husband Giovanni and our 4 adorable dogs Horowitz, Opalino, Rubelia and Soldino. Among my clients there are several Italian breeders and cynophilists, but also from Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, France, Germany, Finland, Russia. My husband, dog educator and ethology's studious, author of 3 books, helps me in my work. I collaborate with the artisans Camilla Coccari and Simona Morgagni in the creation of the bijoux and accessories of the "Estro Armonico" collection with images of dogs. Together with them I manage the laboratory and show room (where my small Photo Atelier is also located) in the historic center of Ravenna.
