How did all start? How did you make the decision to start working together?
There was no some precise moment when we decided to work together, we just started dating in 2008 and shooting was our all the time occupation. We taught ourselves with everything we know and felt it comfortable to work on projects, develop ideas, search and explore.
Wasn’t it a little bit weird for two strangers to meet online and start working together?
No, it wasn’t. We were communicating for some period of time on the Internet, talking over the phone, met in a city that was between his and mine home town as we lived 8 hours away from each other by train. We started trusting each other fast.
Can you describe your work and your aesthetics in few words?
We are total perfectionists, thought ‘perfect’ for us may mean something absolutely different than for most of the people.
You are both from Ukraine, how did the situation in Ukraine affect your work, inspiration as artists and also your personal lives?
As you know Ukraine is going through a very difficult time when it has to fight its ‘big brother’ so surely it affects us but mostly on a personal level rather than it affects our art activity. So we just do what many Ukrainians do – help Ukrainian men, Ukrainian army to stand, and collecting donations. A year ago we created our first charitable project where we sell made-by-Tania jewelry and spend money to help those who are in urgent need of medical help. You can check the project here.
