Louba means Love in Russian.

Louba is my third name (my second name is Valerie). It was the name of my russian great-aunt who was very close to my mother. This portfolio is my space for autoportraits where I explore and experiment with my love for photography on a more artistic note.

Being a photographer, I fully appreciate the therapeutic effect of a photoshoot on models. As such, this is my bubble of fun, reflection, introspection and empathy to myself.
