"If I can be part of changing something, to raise curiosity, and to challenge the way people think of femininity, I’d love to be part of that. I’m always happy that my look matches how I feel. If I looked like a beach model, I don’t think I would be doing it. I’m happy that the things that get offered to me really fit my personality"
Hannelore Knuts in conversation with The Talks.

Masha Vasyukova is a young filmmaker who shuttles between Paris, where she is based, and London and New York where she finds constant inspiration. I first noticed the video work she did for Iris Van Herpen's FW 14 presentation which led me to Masha's beautifully prismic collaborations with Craig McDean. Masha's passionate yet nuanced image-making stayed in my memory bank for the past year, which is why it was such a pleasure to engage her in the following conversation.

Beauty is artifice, if the beauty you're talking about is cosmetic. Natural's not in it, much as it pretends to be. The post-digital usually veils this, with great sleight of hand, in the best beauty campaigns and the most seductive editorials, touting the power of the product to transform and transcend. Do we believe this anymore ? I think we do. No matter how far you take it, no matter how Brechtian your post-production gets as an image-maker, we will always want to believe that not only is the image real, but that it is also possible. That is the art of artifice, which is what 21st century fashion has become.
