As for the name.
"Olga Zavershinskaya" is my full name, but I'm better known as "Armene".
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PICK UP A CAMERA?
Usual need in self-expression and the fact that drawing takes much more time.
WHAT PARTICULAR CHALLENGES DO YOU FACE WITH EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AS OPPOSED TO OTHER GENRES?
Some misunderstanding and pietism from the side of the watchers, husbands and boyfriends from the side of the models.
DO YOU PREFER TO SHOOT WITH FILM OR DIGITAL?
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
I don't think so. There are not so many open-minded people to make them really popular and the quantity of persons who suppose any kind of erotic art to be just illegal is still growing. Plus there is a limit of the popularity. When something is too popular it looses its value to quickly.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I had drawing as my hobby some years ago, but now photography takes all my time.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Metal in general, folk metal in particular
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
