Maria Kapajeva

Katja from the series Call Me Early

College/University: University for the Creative Arts, Farnham
Course Level/Title: BA (Hons) Photography

The black and white silver gelatin prints in Call Me Early portray individuals captured upon waking. They are stirred into consciousness with the click of the camera. Each portrait sitter has a special significance to Maria Kapajeva and she strives to freeze her perceived beauty of them at the moment they awake, without their ‘masks’ of readiness for the day to come. www.mariakapajeva.com
