Daria Grigorieva draws inspiration from historical films and Italian operas. The photographer admits that she strives to make the characters of her portraits look if as they descended from the Renaissance paintings as if they were frozen in a "time capsule". Instead of capturing what is seen with the eye, Daria suggests moving to another time and era and trying out a new image. Together with the customer she comes up with the image, and goes over the wardrobe, makeup, wishes of the model, and creates a mood board before the photoshoot.
The photographer collaborates with young designers and stylists of St. Petersburg. Her photographs have been published in Elegant, Feroce, and Mordant magazines.
