The portfolio of photographer Nikita Pirogov is showered with photographs far from the every day. While the portrait shots do possess the element of happenstance, the subjects, settings and stories are no where near conventional. The combination of eerie yet inviting epitomizes the intrigue that lies at the core of her photography, which leaves much the interpretation of viewers with its mysterious air.

While her body of photos may seem diconnected from each other, Pirogov draws associations between them by capturing tangible elements of the world that she sees as harmonious, despite the strong differences of perception that exist from person to person. "I am interested in looking for parallels in separate elements of various art forms. In effect, by doing this I am trying to feel my way towards some kind of visual 'poetry'."
