Anastasia Dutova (1983), Franco-Russian photographer, resident for many years in the Geneva region. She finds her passion in capturing portraits, focusing on artistic images associated with the characters in her sessions. Anastasia seeks to depict the subject's personality through artistic techniques using color, light and composition as brushes to paint captivating pictures. Her style is characterized by the combination of colors, shapes, mixing of textures with the use of multi-exposure, the use of natural and artificial light, as well as the deliberate exaggeration of certain details or colored accents.

Her goal goes beyond simple physical representation, seeking to reveal the unexplored beauty of the human soul, which she tries to convey in her photographs. Her gaze is fixed on the search for the potential inherent in each person and she strives to add a touch of magic and creation, often imperceptible in the rush of daily life.

Anastasia's work was greatly influenced by artists such as Vrubel, Marc Chagall, Van Gogh, Gauguin, the Pre-Raphaelites and Impressionists, as well as the films of Pedro Almodóvar. This convergence of inspirations is evident in her distinctive style, where each image becomes an emotional and artistic exploration.

Anastasia finished her studies in RGUTIS (Moscow) for a Master of Fashion Design and Photography in 2010, and since then she continues to do personal projects and collaborate with brands, companies and personal commissions.
