Bieke Depoorter - Ou Menya

Bieke Depoorter is a Belgian photographer with a unique technique she uses to achieve candid, beautifully honest photographs - she travels across the world and couch surfs with strangers, taking photos along the way. For her original project using this method, she travelled across Russia - visiting tiny forgotten villages with a piece of paper explaining her request. The resulting photographs became Ou Menya - the pictures we have highlighted here.
