25 Weeks of Winter

25 Weeks of Winter is a visual diary in a book-form about the separation from the beloved one. What does it take to forget someone you used to love, to let go of memories and regrets? Psychologists say that it takes five stages – denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. While going through a break-up of my own, I have tried to respond to my feelings and emotions by creating images that would reflect on how I felt at the time. I was hoping to translate something so deeply personal into a story the viewer can read and relate to.

Ekaterina Anokhina (1983) is a photographer from Russia who has recently graduated from the Rodchenko School of Photography and Multimedia in Moscow. Having a Bachelor’s degree in psychology as her background, she is interested in working on personal photographic projects.
