We were first drawn to Moscow based photographer, Katerina Plotnikova’s work simply for the obvious reason that a young child was posing with a snake! It intrigued us, so we knew we wanted to find out more, and let’s just say we’re glad we did!
Katerina creates stunning images inspired by fairy tales, which are effortlessly beautiful. However, additionally she works with lives animals throughout her shoots which simply add to her work often encompassing a fantasy style element. Her work includes peacocks, camels, foxes, snakes, hedgehogs and all manner of creatures calming residing within the photo.
These are often paid with a girl of young woman lending herself to an innocence within the photos which can often be a sharp contrast when there’s a potentially deadly created draped around her head.
We urge you to go check out her work on Instagram @_katerinaplotnikova_
