Photo shoot; This Pink Cat by Jelena Osmolovska

"This pink cat" series is about those moments in life when we put on a mask and but the cost of that mask is turn our souls inside out .In my life I am often faced with the duplicity of humanity.

I`m a skilled self-taught photographer from Latvia. I discovered the world of photography after the birth of my second child, four years ago. Photography is a reflection of my experiences, thoughts and situations that have changed me.

I work with natural light and pick the costumes and locations for my photo shoots by myself, whatever allows me to express myself and my emotions more effectively. I get a lot of ideas, but not all of them reach completion. All of the projects that are finished happen in a kind of synchronicity; when my feelings begin to overwhelm me and I direct those emotions into my photography.

“This pink cat” series is about those moments in life when we put on a mask and but the cost of that mask is turn our souls inside out .
In my life I am often faced with the duplicity of humanity. I see people pretending to achieve something very important, financially important, creating an image for themselves they thought would impress those around them. But their inner world, under the weight of that pretense, creates suffering and turned them inside out in ways they couldn’t anticipate. We often put on masks and, over time, forget take off them.

I wanted to show this situation in photographs and to show how it looks from the other side. Photography felt like my only opportunity to convey this particular meaning without words. In this series the model is my sister . She is the one person who understands me with half a look, who knows about my life`s experiences. This closeness has helped us to accurately convey the ideas behind of “ This pink cat” photo shoot.

I hope this series gives people an opportunity to reflect on their priorities, to consider what is genuinely important in life. After all, it is only our souls at stake.

Fotopoesie: The backstage story of a photo book

An image only makes sense if it "sees the light" and if it is seen by someone. Otherwise it would be just a visual thought. In my opinion, the best way to bring an image to life is through a book.
