On the other side


I am very inspired by the futuristic architecture and I decided to reflect on the theme of space and parallel realities. That is why I used mirrors, futuristic architecture. I wanted to create an image of a stranger who is on the other side of reality.

Jury Statement

Julia Bezhanova's series is distinguished by its aesthetic, differentiated and well elaborated visual language.

The selection of her pictorial spaces, as well as the colours are a stylistic element, as well as giving sense. Her style is fresh and present and reflects the current zeitgeist of a young generation. The mirror as a metaphor for reflection and image. The materiality in combination with the elegance of thinking makes this work so outstanding and present.

‚On the other side‘ by Julia Bezhanova shows how exciting and beautiful fashion photography can be.
