Ira Chernova is 23 and was born in Moscow. She became interested in photography 4 to 5 years ago after realizing she needed something else to channel her energy into besides studying engineering. She began taking photos with her parents old film camera, but got more serious when she began traveling 3 years ago. Ira has spent the last year and a half on the road photographing the beautiful places she’s been and amazing people she’s met. Ira says even though Moscow is her hometown, she would not call it her residence. She’s currently looking for the place to call my home and start a new stage of her life.
