Olga Toliarenok | Minsk, Belarus

Short bio…

My name is Olga Tolyarionok, born 1983. I Graduated Academy of Public Administration under the Aegis of the President of the Republic of Belarus. Now I am working as a Marketing Specialist for a big agrochemical company in Belarus. Since 2009 I am keen on photography, starting to take pictures with a simpe Nikon P&S (Point and shoot) camera.

You shoot film because…

I take photos with a film as it is a magical process. Digital camera is too easy to use. This advantage turns into a serious disadvantage. You just start taking too many pictures. You stop thinking. Quality loses its value, turning simply into quantity. The Bresson key moment is lost. UNIQUENESS of every picture is lost as well. It happens spontaneously, but it is a fact. When you put a film in your camera and you know that there are only 12 shots, you have to value each shot.

My photography feels like…our memory
