Tanya and Zhenya Posternak
We all have days we just want to zoom out or zoom in - gaining a little more or less, a different perspective. The Ukrainian twins and photographer duo Tanya and Zhenya Posternak have used exactly that approach and created a unique visual language focusing on cropped details and unfiltered beauty: Images, that let us escape from narrow-mindedness into the dreamiest version of reality.

A snob with impressive dancing talents or an evil version of myself.

A younger sister, a best friend, annoying creature, a true artist. All at once.
