TED Fellow Uldus Bakhtiozina is a Russian photographer who asks ordinary people she meets in her travels to model for elaborately staged, costumed, surreal portraits. Full of whimsy and drama, her images often tell the story of their inner worlds. This series, Light of Magic, was inspired by a young Filipino schoolgirl’s poem about still believing in magic.
