The emerging fashion photographer Daria Belikova was born in Russia, Togliatti. Afterwards Daria and her family moved to the countryside close to Moscow city, where she spent her childhood. Daria started to show her interest in photography at the age of 15. In 2012 she moved to London to start her BA in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion from where she successfully graduated in 2015. Since her second year at university, Daria has been showing her interest in art photography, which she has concisely managed to combine with fashion in her following artworks.
After her graduation from LCF and 4 years of creative and working collaborations in UK, she made her way to NYC where her career has continued to develop.
Today she produces artworks that are laced with emotion and steeped with ethereal beauty. Since then Daria has continuously developed and pushed her practice of fashion photography towards heightened levels of surrealism and beauty. The dark emotional state that exudes from the work imbues her series of images with a fantasy and baroque/gothic fairy tale sensibility. A touch of dramatic and macabre beauty style can clearly be seen through Daria’s artworks. Being a young artist, she appears to show the strong aesthetic by creating a unique body of work. The element of romantic atmosphere and drama is an essential part, alongside the use of religious iconography, graveyards, fantasy characters, etc. – all elements that feature and dominate her frames also. Today’s Daria’s main focus is to create original pieces of art and promote them in order to broaden minds.
Production is the key in creating Daria’s signature aesthetic. From models and outfits to props and locations these carefully curated choices result in dark, emotive photography with a large degree of fairy tale like sensibility.
Daria is 23 years old now. She lives and works between Moscow, London and NYC.
