The artist says about her exhibition:

“This is visual expression of my sense of angels.

I use cyanotype as main artistic media. This photographic process is invented in 1842 by the English scientist and astronomer sir John Hershel. The old photographic technique inspired me to express my sense of the angels. The blue color and the brush traces complete the aimed aesthetic. Everyone has sensed the presence of angels even if they do not admit that someone is looking after them and shows the right path…

The first part of the photos is made through double exposure with external flash… my attempt to control the chance. The second part includes portraits of the model Valeria Kadiyska.

The photos are exposed on sunlight.”
