Daria Tuminas’ Ivan and the moon

Daria Tuminas was born in 1984 in St.-Petersburg, Russia. She has always been interested in photography, from different angles that is. She has conducted academic research and writes critical essays on photography besides actually taking pictures. ‘Ivan and the Moon’ is her very first project in the latter category.

Ivan is the elder, he is 16. Andrey, nicknamed “Moon”, is the younger, 14. The two brothers live in a far located village in the northern part of Russia. They differ from city teenagers a lot – have completely other moral values and fairy tale world inside: go hunting and fishing, know joiner’s chisel, play with ghosts at abandoned places, do not want to move to a city and love nature. Mature and childish at the same time. Naive and enigmatic.
