“Their presence is soft and unobtrusive. They are fast and precise. Their eye is kind and intelligent; dynamic documentary style, elegant portraits, symbolic details, moody landscape and fluid compositions. I didn’t want just memories, I wanted art.”

Natalya Shulyakovskaya, Point Cabrillo Lighthouse, Mendocino
