It is often said that there are two sides to every story, and this certainly applies to every tale on romantic relationships. Look at any piece of romantic fiction and you will find situations where a female character sees something in a certain way while her male love has a completely different point of view. It’s all about how individuals uniquely interpret the facts of a situation. There are numerous natural misunderstandings that happen between members of the opposite sex all the time and these are often a result of characters interpreting situations purely from their own perspectives. That is also what makes this series of images by the young photographer Anya Schiller (1988, Russia) so interesting. Similar to what authors do in romance novels, by smart juxtaposition and sequencing, she engineers a deliberate twist to drive the story forward.

Anya Schiller is a former student of the International Summer School of Photography, annually held in Latvia, where she attended the workshop Personal Documentary: Interior lead by Michael Ackermann. Prior to that, in 2010, she graduated in Visual Journalism from the State University in Saint Petersburg. She currently works as an editorial photographer and has started to create very personal zines.
