Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool and feature it right here

Mnatsian Gemma Hamletovna (or Gemma Ham for short) is a 17-year-old photographer living between Moscow and Yoshkar-Ola,Russia. Up until last year, Gemma was very engaged in painting and fashion, but now she is trying to combine  her hobbies. She is currently working on three projects, all video from photographs. "I want to connect my life with video art [and] become a cinematographer," Gemma says. "Camera, video camera, album and paint will always be with me."

The photo above was taken in Sergiyev Posad, Russia during the Day of the Christianization of Kievan Rus'. "It is a beautiful day, a special atmosphere." Gemma is always carrying a camera on her and currently she makes sure to have her Sony SLT-A33 and an old Zenit film camera.

To see more of Gemma's work, please check out her Flickr, and her Vimeo.
