Katerina Bodrunova is a self-educated Russian photographer who began photographing in 2009. Usually, her art photography exhibits very elegant figures.
Her work is striking and magical, often featuring subjects who defy gravity or seem effortlessly unaffected by their surroundings. Bodrunova has won a number of prestigious photography awards; amongst them are the Prix de la Photographie, Paris (2011), the Pollux Awards 2011, London and first prize in the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards “Color” Contest, London (2011). Bodrunova has exhibited her work internationally in cities like London, Barcelona, Seoul and Buenos Aires.
Katerina Bodrunova explains that her photographs “challenge conventional physics and show their subjects as non-gravity objects with an ability to transcend time and space.” … “Sometimes we change the space around us to adjust our ideas and sometimes space, place or time dictates its rules. We can fight it or we can embrace it, the choice is ours. ”
She states: “I started to take pictures actively in 2009, I even left my work in an airline company. Before that time I had had an experience only with my dad’s Zenit camera. In 2010 «Surrealism», «Oil», «Nest» serieses appeared which won numerous of prizes and were exhibited in different countries. I can tell you something touching about it. When I work – shoot – I forget about everything: I am cold or hot, I have eaten today or not, I’m covered with mud… and the things like these. I go back to reality when it’s done and if it’s successful.”
