#AsSeenInPrint: Evocative Storytelling

Aesthetica Magazine sent this email to their subscribers on January 12, 2024.


It will come as no surprise to readers that Polina
Washington's background is in cinematography. Light and
colour are crucial to her body of work. In the following images, complete stories are communicated through a singular sunbeam,
or door left ajar. You may be reminded of Roger Deakins (Blade Runner 2049), known for his command of blues and oranges,
or the room-sized light and space installations of James Turrell.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
These pictures are carefully crafted with attention to detail. Some characters shade their eyes from the glare of an artificial sun or open window, whilst others lie back, bathing in warm shafts of red, white and yellow. Washington was born in Veliky Novgorod, Russia, and later studied to be a Director of Photography in St. Petersburg. Now, she shares her skills with others, teaching workshops and pushing students to work with, rather than against, their fears.
