Perhaps it is the variety in her education and change of cultural contexts that influenced her photographic style. Personal, reflective and playful, it has a strong focus on the priority of the idea. Even though work on the macro scale is technically challenging with creative limitations, Aliona attempts to offer an interpretation and individual approach to every object and collection she encounters.
One of the major tasks for Aliona is to create a space where the designer´s and photographer´s views can meet, enriching each other. Hence, that is why the contextual element and storytelling play an important role in her photographic process. The result is an always different photo series, where, in addition to a highlighted jewelry, a reflected view appears for the given motif. That provides designers an advantage, presenting their objects subtly and creating a space art and commerce to intersect.
