Dina Khashkhozh

My name is Dina Khashkhozh. It took me the whole year to work on the project "Transformation". I chose the girls for it among my friends , not models. Not accidentally all participants are originally Circassian. It was very important to pick up different girls but at the same time the ones who had typical Circassian features. Specially for that I traveled to the city of Nalchik . I did the make-up of the girls by myself wanting to ensure that the texture of white that I have applied on the skin was all different, at some cases rough , at some soft . According to the plan, I depersonalized the girls to almost beyond recognition. They became white sheets on which in some cases I put the ornament on.
