1. Can you describe yourself for us in 5 words?
Patient, Open, Reticent , Thoughtful, Honest
2. Can you remember the first time you picked up a camera? Your first subject?
My first subject was my old friend from school; in 2007. She was a beautiful woman, and I wanted to show her how I experienced her beauty.
3. What made you choose photography? Or did it choose you?!
I don’t know who choose whom. I believe that it was just a life coincidence, a good coincidence. I studied architecture originally, but after a few years I realized it wasn’t my life’s mission. Then I decided to give my beloved hobby a try, and explore whether or not it might be the right direction for my life. To be honest, I never thought this career would develop so quickly.
4. Are you drawn to a particular style of photography, as a connoisseur? Are there specific artists that inspire your style?
There are a few photographers who are my absolute inspirations like Helmut Newton, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindberg, Paolo Roversi. I’d say I have a classical style of photography, but I’m open to experiencing new techniques.
5. Do you prefer shooting with models or with friends? And when you do shoot models…favorite agencies to work with, or specific subjects?
I never have restrictions to a model or not; if I a see a beautiful person (who may be a friend, an acquaintance or a professional) I would just ask to take an image of him/her. Job-wise: of course I work more often with professional models, but also many actresses, bloggers and other civilians.The agencies that I work with most are: M4, 2PM, Core, Izaio, Spin and a lot of independent scouters.
6. Also: is it easier to shoot men or women? Why?!
For me, there is zero difference (in the sex of the model); if its man or a woman. It’s about the beautiful human being.
7. Where do we find you living these days?
I live in the city of Berlin! Of course, I travel a lot and working in many different places, in different countries, around the world. Mostly I am in Berlin.
8. Favorite environment to work in…Studio or on location?
My studio gives me a great feeling of control, power and security; and sometimes for the model, it is easier to open up in the studio. Of course, I also love location shootings. Even if I’m on a vacation, if I spot an amazing setting, I go crazy to try and find a model for a few shots.
9. Do you have an intuitive way to identify a location for your shoots? When you see it, does it just feels right to you? Or are there different planning/ selection steps
I think every photographer or creative mind has this intuition. You just see it and it’s like: “Damn, so here it shall be!”. But it doesn’t always work out. I check the lighting and then I do some test shots, so I can see if the images that are produced, match the vision that I’ve imagined.
10. Do you love the control of diverse lighting set ups, or do you prefer working with natural light?
I love the control of creating in my studio, yes. But there is nothing in this world as beautiful as the magical light of a natural sunset. There is no artificial light arrangement that can simulate that!
11. As a very successful photographer already…What’s “the dream” Anna?
First, thank you for asking me this question. I don’t think I’m of myself as being a ‘successful’ photographer yet; but I will assert that I am on my way there! My dream is to have no walls inhibiting me from unlimited creation: no model or celebrity that I wouldn’t be able to work with. That fantasy would include the greatest clients in the world, and being appreciated by the worlds most creative minds.
12. Finally, on a personal note, tell us your favorite things: vacationing spot, type of music, a splurge, a designer you love, and or your drink of choice (if you have one)?!
Vacation: Somewhere very very warm; with a beautiful beach!
Music: Madonna, Depeshe Mode, Trentemoller
Designer: Jil Sander
Drink: Black Coffee, NO milk!
Photographer: Anna Daki
Hair: Anna Ermilina ( Vanessa Nouveau )

As if she were a visionary sculptor of stone, Margherita Loba chips away the layers of pretense that disguise the spirit concealed within her medium. Bringing forth the artistic destiny of her subject, Margherita spins the natural world as reflected in her lens, into the intoxicating portrayal of an idyllic garden of Eden. In the nature of our namesake, this series of images purely satiates the craving for a whimsical daydream. The Romanesque paradise would not be so entirely perfect without the delightful musing of our wood nymphs: models Juliet B. and Sara P. They appear joyfully uninhibited, frolicking and filled to the brim with carefree abandon. The lyrical exposure of nature and skin, life, sunlight and playfulness, make the collection an enchanting spring mirage.

To compliment our, already extremely delectable, additions to the Spring Fling issue of Satiety Paper, nothing was more fitting than incorporating another ‘Perfect 10’. The thanks for this gorgeous feature goes to Libertine and Satiety Paper alum, Erik Tranberg. An original and constant source of inspiration since the birth of the Libertine, Erik routinely turns out memorable and heavy hitting imagery; worthy of wallpapering our entire office in the prints! For Satiety Paper #4, Erik requisitioned the up-and-coming Russian sensation, Lada Kravchenko (who has worked with such infamous photographic talents as David Bellemere, Herring + Herring, and Filippo Del Vita – to name a few) as his muse and partner in crime. With her naturally sultry aura and unrelentingly perfect figure, Lada could easily steal a screen of any size; making this collection even more punchy for our paper. Erik surpasses his past triumphs with this new editorial, fit for the likes of Victoria’s Secret. Sleek black leather mixed with modern, structured under-pinnings…miles of smooth skin, tousled hair and a sharp pair of smoky eyes…strike an opulent chord for the story’s undertone. The results of this partnership are quite positively…picture perfect. Enjoy!

Meet fashion’s new demigoddess, Brianna Stone. If the term ‘the body’ hadn’t already been coined by the infamous Heidi Klum…we would declare Miss Stone as the original. The Satiety Paper team experienced her for the first time, through the portfolio updates of Lucas Passmore (a master craftsman of the lens). Not only does Lucas routinely turn out some of the most timeless fashion pieces by an upcoming artist…but the way he pulls together the team for each of his editorials, has a way of blending rare and unpredictable elements of perfection into a mesmerizing final product. ‘Lost Lake’ is a perfect example; framing raw elements of nature to serve as an exquisite backdrop for the intoxicating suppleness of our dame. The pairing of organic beauty, both in his subject and in the surrounding landscape, create a fluid harmony, right before the eye. Each image portrays a composition that, though juxtapose in texture, strikes a complimentary compatibility. For the cover story of our fourth issue, it’s an honor to kick of on such a high note. Enjoy!

Photographer Vlada Krasilnikova conjures a futuristic dreamland of glaring, neon fluorescence and the chromed-out glint of sleek, steel surfaces…bouncing light off of the staunch silhouettes of lifeless technology. The sterility of the setting makes for an artful dichotomy of organics and inorganics; spotlighting the natural electricity of Aquarelle’s striking new sensation, Lida. The structured designs were created by the visionary Tonya Vorobyeva and arranged by stylist Elena Ivanova Tagirova. Clean and slick beauty accents were incorporated by the talented Anna Bugrova. Dark scenes illuminated by neon lights, strewn with artificial props and injected futuristic noir designs, make for a sultry series of cyber inspired style. Enjoy!
