Photographer and artist Uldus Bakhtiozina's photos treat us to her unique vision of Russian fairy tales. She reinterprets them in her photos by focusing on the pagans roots and ethnography of Russ Land. The artist pays special attention to her ambivalent interpretation of the symbolism hidden in legends and myths.
