Hello everyone! My name is Daria, I was born in Kyiv.

The desire to travel the world and see a life outside my home country was the reason, why I moved to Poland, France, Slovakia and later to Mexico. All the amazing places I saw, all the people I met made me feel like some moments should last forever.

That’s why I began to develop myself in photography, in order to save these moments.

I’m glad to be a part of the project! Hugs

Hi, my name is Cemil.

I am from Germany and I live in Göttingen. I love historical European architecture. I am fascinated by the view of Gothic churches, Baroque palaces, alleys in medieval old towns or 19 th century boulevards. Photography provides me the means to capture these amazing views, and keep them both for my own memory and to convey them to other appreciators of art.

I participated in Discover Prague.

think this is a great place to do that!

All that make me feel free.

So.. what better opportunity to combine these two passions and at the same time meet new people? I’m looking forward to this new experience! See you soon!
