Photographer Polina Shubkina opens her new show, Russian Dream, on Thursday, September 6th, at the Artist Residence Gallery in Sai Ying Pun.

The exhibit is a collection of behind the scenes moments with Russian models living in Hong Kong.

Taking a cue from Nan Goldin’s photography, Polina captures casual, informal points in time as her subjects go about their lives in the foreign environment of H.K.. (No, not all the photos are from Dragon-i and Volar!) 😉

Russian Dream also serves as a photo-journal of the individuals she’s encountered and interacted with during her time in the city.

Born in Russia herself, Polina Shubkina did a stint in Paris before enrolling at the MFA program at SCAD in Hong Kong.
