A photographer working for a fashionable brand or a glossy magazine knows what is expected from him: to show a product or a person in as favourable light as possible, and to turn the viewer/reader into a buyer. Russian born Alla Esipovich knows all about it. While taking photographs of "the beauty and the beautiful" in her own way, she became more and more aware of the "waste products of glamour", of people left outside the "images of illusion".
