Zlata by Helen Eriksson

“I wanted to photograph Zlata in a really simple way, with no hair and makeup where her personality could shine through. I really liked her as a skater boy. When I asked her if she could skate board in real life and she actually knew how to, my image of her was complete. I like to photograph without giving too much direction so the subjects can interpret the situation more freely. Zlata told me she was from Kazakhstan and for some reason that made just as much sense as the skateboarding.” – Helen Eriksson
