Polina Davydenko

I work mainly with the medium of photography. My previous work is based on the approach of documentary photography and my main interests are the study of cultural stereotypes in the relationship between humans and animals and the influence of digital media on humans.

Currently, one of my main themes is voyeurism of the documentary photographer and his role in relation to the observed object. The main medium is no longer photography, but also audio, video and installation. However, I keep the basic aspects of photography and its technical predestination, which I transform into other forms.

The second aspect is the study of the phenomenon of storytelling. Sharing stories is something that has always influenced us, and now the story is emphasized in the mass media. My main premise is that content should be suggestive and associative for the viewer, listener, or reader. I’m interested in how much emotion or empathy a story arouses in people.
