"My name is Maria. I am Russian. I was born in Tyuman, the capital of Siberia. All my life I wanted to have an education abroad. I am currently studying at the School of Fine Arts in Milan. I chose to become a photographer because I believe that it is the only way to improve the world and myself. My project in Deauville is to photograph children and adolescents. I ask them to write how they see themselves in 15 years, what dreams they have. It is very interesting because they are different from each other, each one already has his personality, they are already individuals. I have in all 26 portraits and 26 writings. I would like to return to Deauville in 15 years, to ask them what they have become, what dreams they have been able to achieve. I hope all their dreams will be. My portraits are in black and white, it's a good way to show emotions and to work together on the faces of the models. "
