DARIS SENCHIKHINA is a film photographer from Ukraine. Most of her photos were taken in such countries as Ukraine, Czech Republic and Sweden. Daria finds film to be a great teacher that gives no chance for a second try, forcing the photographer to think about the light and composition before a camera shutter is clicked. She thinks that film intrigues a lot, because results can’t be seen instantly. Her favorite subjects are people and architecture. Daria loves street photography because it contains both. In January 2015, Daria arranged her personal photo exhibition “People and Cities” which aimed to raise money for local animal shelter. Daria is a member of Lensbr community and has personal portfolio page at Vogue Italia website.
