“The portrait shows Jana and her friend Alexei in the apartment they share. Jana is one of the best friends of Lena, my flatmate at the time, and she is also one of the dazzling personalities of the music scene in Tomsk. In addition to her profession as a personal manager in a mid-sized company, she’s the singer in a feminist band called ВХОРЕ. I spent a lot of time with the fully-engaged band, at independent festivals in Tomsk, at concerts and on trips to other large cities is Siberia, such as Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk and Kemerovo. I was particularly impressed by the non-conformance, openness and warmth of this strong woman.”
