Sometimes we feel like buried under the ashes, falling deeper and deeper into the abyss. People, relationships, faith - seems like everything dies. But we can fight until we breath, so listen to the order from your soul and arise, no matter how much ashes is above you. Being a self-portrait, this work also symbolizes stronger will of a female personality. Pictured Vadim Doctorov, Valerie Sobakar Khudayar, self-portrait. Hair stylist Yuliya Serenko
