Viktoria Andreeva is a fine-art photographer focused on the body as the main composition element. The distortion of the figure aims to blur the line between reality and illusion, natural and artificial. She plays with elemental and symbolic opposites which contradict each other at first glance. Her work seeks to connect and communicate with the viewer – to open up a field for interpretation of the narrative.. As a former ballet dancer, Viktoria’s love and passion for the art of movement have deeply influenced her aesthetic. Born and raised in Bulgaria, in 2015 she moved to Vienna, where she pursued a degree in Photography and Audiovisual Media at the College of Arts Die Graphische. During her studies, she began her work on one of her biggest projects so far – a book depicting the many faces of ballet. This work contains photographic work focused on six ballet dancers from the Vienna State Opera alongside interviews and insight into their world.
