Maria Kotylevskaja was born in Russia and moved to Germany at an early age. She studied Media and Communication Science in Hamburg where she’s currently based and working as a freelance photographer. Analogue photography became her biggest passion after her mother gave her an old lomo camera.
This set was shot with an old Pentax K1000, where everything is mechanical and you have to be able to set everything manually. The aesthetic is very different, imperfect in a lot of ways.
The pictures are rough but at the same time so pure – no photoshop needed!
