This set of images was selected as the winner of a competition set by 'Hungry Eye Magazine' for all the in-class and online participants of #Picbod 2012 for creating a visual story using only two objects - a body and a white shirt.


“Mariya seemed to understand the possibilities, which a simple white shirt offers as a vehicle to create both atmosphere and narrative. Her images are suggestive, emotive and questioning. They suggest sexuality without being obvious and made me look into the images to question her story. In both it’s inception and completion.”
