Lena Vazhenina

is a photographer based in Moscow, Russia.
Studying architecture, Lena Vazhenina found herself venturing into photography, after contributing accidently to an exhibition at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. In her work she captures the essence of being female, celebrating individuality and acknowledges the fact that sex is still a powerful show stopper. All that in a seditious, yet innocent way. However, Lena cannot push boundaries out of a social force, “It’s useless in Russia, people have to become more cheerful and open first,” she says.The fact that all photographers seem to have photos of girls posing in front of white walls in their archive inspired Lena to create the communal project GAAWW, “Girls Against A White Wall” – a Tumblr-blog where everybody can submit random, natural and funny photographs of, well, girls against a white background.
