Drawing viewers in
Explaining her approach on her official website Polina says: “Modern technology equips you with some amazing tools that the artists of the past could not even dream of – but the main task is essentially the same: to draw the viewer in, so that they can share your vision and tune into the emotions that you are trying to convey.”
Plotnikova admits that she enjoys still life photography work because she is a “perfectionist.” When working with inanimate objects, you cannot count on something interesting happening. You have to make choices which compel viewers to engage with your art when composing your shots, so they connect with your work. By constantly evolving her style and experimenting, Polina manages to achieve this aim with her works, allowing her to become a popular modern photographer.
The Russian-born creative freely admits that she has a penchant for capturing flowers on camera. When working with a flower, Polina strives to find its unique look by analysing its mood and character, so she can introduce viewers to the hidden beauty locked within. On this, she says “I try to lift a flower off its typical setting and put it into indeterminate space, where its beauty can be seen in all its purity.”
