Man, that top picture is explosive! I love photography that is subtle and nuanced and carefully framed and balanced, but when it's as high-octane and eye-grabbing as Anka Zhuravleva then it's a real sight to behold. This difficult-to-type name has been sitting idle on a list scrawled on a post-it note inside a small black notebook for waaay too long.
And just as the first is a bluster of movement the second is contemplative and as the subject locks eyes with the viewer it's also a little creepy. Especially with the ghostly limbs beneath the water's surface.
Anka Zhuravleva has many interesting ideas that results in outstanding photography, and all viewable on her beguilingly minimal website: HERE
