Following their dream, eight photographers, including the deaf graduates of the Higher School of Photography Vasily Ivanov, Maria Rumyantseva, Julia Klabukova, Maria Bannova, Inga Gracheva, Yulia Kulkova, and Anastasia Neschastnova and Alexander Zheleznov, went to the reserved area of the Krasnoyarsk Territory last summer - Ergaki, to collect material for creativity and share their amazing perception of the world. Now we can see them through the eyes of the beauty of the unique Siberian reserve and feel how nature can inspire and regenerate man.As the project participants themselves say, this is a creative journey - air! And life is based on the principle of "breathing in and out".
This project has found its life thanks to the creative tandem of the actress of the theater of the deaf children "Nemoslov", the sign language teacher, the sign language interpreter at the Deaf High Schools of Anastasia Neschastnova and the professional photographer, teacher, deputy director of the Higher School of Photography Alexander Zheleznov.
