Dasha Denger

I am an editorial fashion photographer but I also double as a stylist and set designer. I was born in Russia and moved to the Midwest in 2000. My vision for fashion photography is always teetering on the verge of high end portraiture mixed with vintage and obscure styling that transports my subjects into a different time. I prefer to go extravagant but I also feel very confident and secure in complete minimalism. My eye for fashion and photography has been developing for over 15 years and I'm always changing and evolving and in turn, my work takes on different characteristics from all of my life experiences. I truly believe to create art that has soul one must be completely honest with themselves and with their craft.
