Born in Belarus, Alicegriffs discovered a career path in photography when she moved to Shanghai 4 years ago. Although she has been a photographer for a relatively short time, she’s been interested and involved in visual art and fashion for the past 10 years. She has also been interested in Asia for same amount of time, which had a huge impact on its manifestation in creativity.
In addition to fashion photography, she also shoots in genres such as portraits, commercial photography, street photography, events and so on. “I cannot call myself a photographer of one genre. I just love to shoot and show people how I see this world. At some point, I just realized that not all people notice what I can see. I feel this is the reason why I’m doing photography right now.”
Alicegriffs runs her photo studio Griffs Production in Shanghai.
1. Coffee or tea? 喜欢喝茶还是咖啡？
I am a coffee lover, I especially like to try different brewing options and different combinations of coffee with other drinks or spices.
2. Favorite sound? 最喜欢什么声音？
Sound of waves. Love everything connected to the sea and water at all. I love to listen to it, I love swim and I love to draw it.
3. Best TV series out right now? 现在最好的电视剧是哪一部？
Definitely would say ‘’ The handmaid’s tale’’ is something that you should watch. Starting from the script and the idea to all those details in the characters, colors and storyboards of each shot – it is worth your time. But overall it’s a ‘beautiful story’ about degradation of society.
4. Favorite food to eat? 最喜欢的食物？
Steak with some raw salad
5.Favorite country to visit? 最喜欢旅行的国家？
I have been living and traveling in China for a long time and therefore I will say China!
There is everything here: mountains, the sea, and deserts and beautiful lakes with forests. And of course technology and development.
我在中国生活时间久了，也享受不少旅行机会，所以我会说是中国! 你要的大自然景观如山地、湖泊、沙漠、森林，或者现代高科技城市—— 中国全都有。
