''Anna Yausheva, 26, currently living in Moscow, is, in her own words 'an old-fashioned girl in almost everything'. She also takes heaps of pictures using analog cameras. Although in casual conversation she might refer to it as a 'hobby', photographs taken by her tend to leave one (well, me, anyway) flustered with joy. A definition that fits 'art', among other things. The kind of joy we talk here is of a special kind, materialized in pictures that have a very distinctive, raw, and ultimately sexy set of feelings and ideas on display.''
'There’s a feel of living on a pagan Scottish island and getting the urge to burn a Christian policeman in a ritualistic sacrifice, there’s obscure instrumentation in the way the BBC Radiophonic Workshop pioneers would be proud, and there’s a haunting beauty that melts your heart and invites you in to sit on soft furnishings and drink the best warm mug of mead you’ve ever tasted.'
