Gala and the wanderlust

My Scholarship entry - Maroc

Morocco | Friday, 31 October 2014 | 5 photos

Wanderlust is deep in my blood. I find myself most happiest and whole while shlepping a backpack or suitcase around. I was born in Ukraine and arrived in US, via Austria and Italy at the age of 11. It was a difficult move for my family, but for me it was an incredible adventure where I got my first taste of life on the road. I have since traveled quite a bit and now shlep an even heavier backpack, which includes and SLR, several lenses and a tripod.

My father has always been a photography enthusiast and kept a darkroom at my grandmothers house. Some of my fondest childhood memories were of us spending time in a pitch black room with a single red bulb. I've always had a deep appreciation for photography and now that I dove in in exploring this craft, I find it incredibly gratifying to be able to express myself creatively through this medium. I like to capture unique perspectives, uniquely lit moments and am not afraid to climb a fence, or a tree to get that magic shot. I look forward to hearing regarding your decision.
