Summary: “I’ll Be Your New York” is a tale of self-subversion and desire that offers a girl’s take on the much cherished and coveted l’amour fou. The city was meant to function as a visceral presence that envelops the body transfigured by love and feeling different against an urban backdrop. I was fascinated at the thought of conveying the intensity things acquire, as intensity seems to be the only thing I have ever chased in my life. The pictures were taken with a vintage 1970s Polaroid, one would say to reinforce the impression of uniqueness and tangibility – to be honest, however, I don’t quite remember how it ended up falling into place and becoming whole. The title is (apart from referencing the pop anthem) a metaphor of desire and longing, as the only city I took pictures of is London, around its Eastern part.

Date and place of birth of photographer/s: 1985 in Moscow, Russia
