Elena Martynyuk is making photographs since her childhood. Her first real artwork she made in 1989, and she won her first golden medal in 1990 at the London Salon of Photography.
She prefers to work in black and white. Her favorite subjects are portaits, nudes and underwater photography. She's got already more than 3000 photographs in her collection.
In recent years Martynyuk specialized in making individual portraits, advertising and product portfolios for leading companies.
Photographer Elena Martynyuk has made an impressive series of photographs about The Master and Margarita in collaboration with the Bulgakov House in Moscow.
The project, which started in 2010, was very ambitious: 70 shoots have been organized and more than 1,000 photos have been made.
The photos have been made at the locations described in the novel, like the roof of the Pashkov House and, of course, at the Bulgakov House on Sadovaya 302-bis. The scenes of the Variety Theatre were photographed at the Moscow Art Theatre MKhAT, where Bulgakov's pieces were performed and where he also worked himself. In 2013, the Russian publishing house Radunitsa presented a deluxe edition of The Master and Margarita with the photos of Elena Martynyuk.
