Evgenia Arbugaeva 1985年出生于西伯利亚的一个名叫Tiksi的小镇,她居住在拉普捷夫海的海边,一直到八岁。2010年,在纽约生活了一段日子的Evgenia Arbugaeva决定回家,并以家乡为主题展开创作。她跟拍一位叫作Tanya的小姑娘,她的冒险精神令Arbugaeva想起儿时的自己。不知为何,这组拍摄于冰天雪地的犹如童话一般的作品,却令人感觉异常温暖。

Evgenia Arbugaeva was born in Siberia in 1985, in the small town of Tiksi, along the oceanfront of the Laptev Sea where she lived until the age of 8. In her most well known series, she followed a young girl named Tanya, who lives in Tiksi and whose interests and sense of adventure similar to those of Arbugaeva at this age. To achieve these photographs, Arbugaeva was inspired by cartoons of the Soviet era, she found in children’s books in the bookshelf of Tanya. “These books are beautiful and have a deep meaning. They are cleverly set pages, the characters are clear and bright. Their images convey a sense of wonder and naive idealism that has always captivated me.”
