Uldus Bakhtiozina

Mar 2014

Photographer and artist, Uldus Bakhtiozina, presents a lighthearted talk on her native home in Russia. Using photography, she pokes fun and shows the audience how we should never take ourselves too seriously.

I’m 27 years old. For Russian society, I’m an old maid and hopeless to ever get married. That’s why you see me in a Mexican fighter mask, in the wedding dress, all desperate in my garden. But remember, irony is the key, and this is actually to motivate girls to fight for goals, for dreams, and change stereotypes.
