An exhibition of photographs with portraits of 12 beauties from different parts of our Motherland in national costumes has opened in St. Petersburg: Altai, Bashkirs, Buryats, Kalmyks, Koryak, Nenoks, Saami, Tuvins, Khakass, Chukchi, Evenks and Yakuts. The gallery is located in the building of the Russian Geographical Society (RGO), clarifies newspaper “Petersburg Diary”.
Filming with beauties took place in nature and against the backdrop of national attractions, and photographs of girls are accompanied by folk sayings. The initiative to create the project was made by the participants of the “Call of the Earth”.
“The uniqueness of the project lies in the fact that the most attractive way was chosen to visually tell about the essence of the versatility and multinationality of our vast Russia. <...> In the pictures you can really see the real beauties – modern, charming, irresistible”, – said the director of the department of the Russian Geographical Society in St. Petersburg Konstantin Mickus.
The pictures were taken by ethnophotographer Ekaterina Kulakova. According to her, one of the participants in the photo shoot admitted that for the first time in her life she put on a national costume, and this helped her find herself.
