My name is Yana Binaev, I am a photographer, dancer, writer / poet, trader & investor and a polyglot, as one, I speak 6 languages. As a passionate equality advocate I often express and translate ideas through my creative work. I aim to raise awareness towards diversity, race and gender equality through my work which are topics of high importance to me since I can remember myself. I create documentary photography projects that tell unique stories. I focus on portrait photography, photography of women and diverse communities events and BTS (behind the scenes) on sets of film and music videos. In my life journey so far, I had the chance to live in 5 different countries and learn to speak 6 different languages, what helps me understand the world, different cultures, and mentalities on a deeper level, and what eventually lead me to be doing what I am doing today and sharing my inner world and perspective through my work. Dance has been present in my life since a young age. The main focus has been on Bellydance most of my life but at an older age, I discovered my passion for Afrobeats, through which I brought to life the concept of Afrobellydance. More about the variety of creative projects can be found on my website. I hope you enjoy looking through the work!
