Words about artist

Evgenia Pirshina, a photographer that makes you “feel” the spirit of Ballet.
"Evgenia Pirshina is definitely one of the most particular and original  ballet and stage photographers of our time. Her distinctive images put the spectator right into the show, close to the dancers. The lines are clean, the colours are bright and contrasting yet sometimes her “swans” seem to be almost unreal, as if they were taken out of a magical dream.
There are not so many photographers who can bring their own personal style into stage reportage and Evgenia is one of them. Without loosing the mood of a performance she knows how to help us see it from a different point of view.
Evgenia always chooses unusual angles and unexpected moments to make her pictures. She creates this exciting mysterious atmosphere  and reminds us that ballet is and will always remain a miracle.
Thanks to the art of Evgenia we can take a look behind the curtains, step onto the stage or even soar above it. We can actually “feel” the spirit of  the performance. Without doubt Evgenia Pirshina creates very emotional, passionate and powerful images that can awake anybody’s interest to the art of ballet."
Giulia Kascina, Anna Pavlova Network (Italy)

"Evgenia has a great advantage over the other photographers: Since 2006 she was an opera singer at the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Musical Theater in Moscow.
Recently, the two parallel worlds in which this artist creates were invaded by another reality - the Art of Photography. Photographs of Evgenia Pirshina are not just a snap shots of certain theatrical situations, they are rather the poetic view of the theater's life."

Anna Smirina, director of the Historical Museum in the Moscow Musical Theater of Stanislavsky and Vl. Nemirovich - Danchenko (Moscow)
