Description of book: I Was A Dream Of Myself is a collection that hints at its own context, collapsing time and place into a visual narrative that drifts through that strange instance of being there. Made between 2012 and 2014, these photographs center around the Kansas-Missouri landscape from which I’ve sprung, with its oft-seen visual tropes and humorous paradoxes. The resulting pictures are ripe with decrepitude and natural beauty, illuminated by the faces that pepper my existence and give color to my personal geography.

The best thing about self-publishing: Retaining total control over a project and seeing it through, as well as the ability to put something forth into the world whenever it calls to you that it’s ready.

Description of book: In March 2012 Yanina Shevchenko travelled from one end of Russia to the other and back again on the trans-siberian railway in a bid to discover for herself the true nature of her homeland. In the space of two weeks she spent a total of twelve days onboard, mingling with her fellow travellers and watching the Russian landscape unfold itself from her carriage window. Born in Volgograd of Russian-Belorussian descent, Yanina was motivated to unearth what ‘Russianess’ meant and whether it existed as a single entity from one end of the motherland to the other. What she encountered and discovered about Russia, and thus about herself, is documented in her book of writings and photography ‘Crossing Over’.

The best thing about self-publishing:
Every project is a change to reinvent yourself!
