My name is Maya and I’m an artistic photographer and a writer living in the UK. I like showing the beauty in nature, and that is sometimes easy and sometimes quite challenging. I value high aesthetic and strive for it in my art because I believe quality is beautiful. I also love everything magical and feminine.

A lot of inspiration in my art has come from my obsession with achieving perfect technique, proving to myself that I can do something and managing to balance out control and lack of it. I don’t like rules, so breaking them in art is always a part of the appeal for me, as is mastering the technique or managing to get the courage to look deeply into the idea, so that I feel no restriction anymore. That’s when I manage to achieve the best results. And yet sometimes, it’s just a lucky click of the shutter that turns out perfect.
