    “I don’t stick to a certain style in my art.
    I don’t want to be labeled as a fashion or nude art photographer.
    Life is impermanent and subject to constant change
    and so is my work”

    Olga Volodina is a Russian-born photo artist currently
    residing in Bangkok. Back in the day she started her
    professional career as a fashion art photographer in Moscow.
    Olga is the author of several social and art photo projects.
    Her works were featured on TV, in print media and exhibited in
    art galleries.

    Almost all of Olga’s works are focused on a human.
    Character, charisma, body, beauty, behavior, relationship,
    actions and mistakes, everything that we call a human life is
    both the main source of inspiration for her and object of her art.
    Male to Female (MTF) Classic nude photography of
    transgender models in black and white.
    Woman Touch, Olga Volodina’s first exhibition in Bangkok,
    was a simple yet exciting way to express the beauty of a
    nude female body through the medium of black and white
    photography. MTF exhibition is a kind of sequence project
    that utilize the same aesthetic of sensual mood to show
    transgender bodies as an art object.
    In the civilized modern world, a choice of sexual orientation is
    the right of every human. People learn how to live among the
    variety of opinions, attitudes and sexual preferences.
    In general we have to learn tolerance.
    As long as transgenders have been existing artists and
    photographers mostly use this phenomenon in art to provoke
    or shock their audience with documental realism often
    underlined with some strong social meanings.
    Photographer Olga Volodina chose another way.
    She prefered the style of classic black & white nude
    photography that doesn’t attract with its play of colors and
    devoid of any social context . Here attention to composition,
    lighting and the beauty of a not-so-obvious-yet human body
    is more important. There are just calm and sensual nude
    pictures shot the same way as classic nude female

    It lets a viewer to keep attention undistracted
    and see the beauty of a transgender body the same way as a
    male or female naked body.
