Shortly after the birth day of Tatsiana’s daughter she found that portraiture was the medium in which she would express her art. She continues to love photographing people and looks forward to being part of all moments in people’s life. The most exciting thing for Tatsiana is working on projects that involve the construction of ideas and their execution until the end. Being a designer helps her to approach the subject from a broader scope and keep the overview in mind. With Tatsiana’s Belarussian heritage and unique professional background, she does things differently than another photographers do. Beyond simply taking a nice picture, Tatsiana takes a step back to observe and capture the person’s emotion and unique details.

Tatsiana Tsyhanova currently resides in Minsk, Belarus with her husband, their daughter, a dog and a cat. Series of photographs “Pure silence of White” is the series about a very unusual beautiful belarussian young woman. Tatsiana met that girl in a subway and decided to invite her as a photo model. Her name was Alina and she was a natural albino with absolutely white hair, eyebrows, eyelashes and light blue eyes. Alina had some problems with eyesight and concentration of sight was rather difficult for her. During the photoshoot Tatsiana and Alina made a lot of fun and women created really original portrait series. Alina’s face didn’t have any make-up, her hair didn’t have any hair styling, that is why all portraits have showed natural beauty of such special person like albino.

  • Tatsiana is indeed a most gifted photographer who has captivated the most beautiful girl I have ever seen since these magical images are beyond words. Alina is a dream… true vision of natural beauty which is very scarce today in our contemporary society. This is what art should be yet is frequently absent no matter where you may reside on our fragile planet. I can still remember encountering another young woman twice similar to Alina several years ago here in Canada… she was extremely pretty with blonde hair but always wore sunglasses. Regrettably I did not have sufficient time to speak to her while she swiftly vanished. Thank you so much Tatsiana for sharing these very unique pictures with a global audience! The internet can be so chaotic yet on rare occasions a special experience. Please extend my admiration & compliments to Alina if possible. Thank you.

  • Thanks Dodho for posting my detailed comment! My sincere apologies as I forgot to include my complete name along with the precise geographic location where I am at the present time namely Ottawa, Ontario… too political for my tastes. These unique images of Alina captivated both my heart & mind while I also felt deep empathy since vitiligo invaded my system several years ago although not intense while glaucoma is in my genetic history so I could indeed lose a percentage of my cherished vision with time while there is still no solution to this serious issue. I regret to say that I have never been to Belarus although winter here can be quite harsh much like Russia! I must confess that Western Europe has always appealed to me especially Spain since the pace of life on this North American continent is often pure madness… far too swift which probably explains why caffeine be it coffee or tea is so popular! Tatsiana’s photographs are quite translucent while Alina’s presence is rather mystical much like gentle snow on a rather mild day… so easy to fall in love in a vicarious manner.
