Vasilisa Ganakova is a freelance art director and photographer based in Paris.
Coming from Russia to France in 2012 to study photography, she also became curious about graphic design, deciding to pursue studies in art direction. Passionate about contemporary art, design and fashion, she divides her time between still life photography and art direction for content and branding.
In her photography projects she often uses paper and other materials to create surreal and graphic compositions. She constantly questions the notion of photography and the ways of how image can carry symbols and meanings.
