Elena Shumilova is a professional Russian photographer whose skill is evidenced in her series of child photographs. Her feeling and emotions are perfectly injected in the innocence and wonder of the child in winter.
The boys in the photographs are the photographer’s sons and the animals belong to the farm she runs. “I largely trust my intuition and inspiration when I compose photos. I get inspired mainly by my desire to express something I feel, though I usually cannot tell exactly what that is” Shumilova explained.
Through her pictures of children, Elena Shumilova recovers the magical feeling of excitement, curiosity and adventure you experience when you are young. The ambiance of her photographic style highlights this feeling and reminds us that at times we should let our surroundings enchant us.
