Expectation and hope is what Yana Uvarova wants to express with her new series based on Alexander Green's original novel 'Assol'. Yana Uvarova interprets his book by her own using non standardized norms of beauty in the society in her series called by the main character who's name is Assol. How the little girl met a wizard and it has been foretold: "... it will be a fine sunny day when a beautiful ship under scarlet sail comes and the noble prince will take you away from here. He'll take you to the world of your dreams, where you will be loved and happy." The neighbours told jokes about her, children teased her, but she waited for her prince. She trusted in the miracles and waited. Arthur Gray's rule was "if you can make a miracle, do it!". And he made a miracle for the wonderful romantic girl.

"I'm hopeful and happy with the new tendency of what is starts to be perceived Beauty in the society nowadays, every woman is beautiful how she was born, I'm sure we are going in the right direction", - says Yana Uvarova

Yana Uvarova is a Russian native fine art and fashion photographer.

Curator’s Comments: 

Welcome to the site!  The narrative photographic series you’ve posted is highly original and surprising, and I appreciate the accompanying statement challenging societal ideas of beauty based on a literary influence. Hopeless is my favorite piece in the grouping, primarily because of the formal relationships.  The figurative shapes of the trees and foliage share the tufted designs of the model’s skimpy white garments. The blank white sky melts into the model’s headpiece, placing contrasted emphasis on her (perhaps slightly exaggerated) forlorn expression.  While the first impulse is amusement, the visual juxtaposition underscores the relationship between natural beauty/design and artifice.  The costuming strikes an interesting balance between voluptuous feminine fashion and child-like naiveté   This is most obvious in her gesture in the piece Hide and Seek. She is coquettish, and challenges the intent of the viewers gaze.
