Thank you for visiting my website/portfolio.
My name is Dinara, I am a photographer, musician, singer, composer and vocal teacher. My life has always been connected with art in its various manifestations.
Here on this website you can find my photography work.
My favorite genre is documentary or reportage. I love to tell stories, tell about people and happenings, show the emotions and beauty of the moment through my photos.
I also love the genres of travel, portraiture (studio and outdoors), product photography.
As a professional, I always do my best to satisfy whoever chooses me as their photographer.
Letters to Ukraine
The project that I started to show love and support to Ukrainians.
From the first days of the war, I went to rallies in New York, I took a camera in my hands and recorded everything that happened around to say to the world: we do care.
One day, right from the rally, I called my relatives in Ukraine. A woman from Odessa unexpectedly joined our conversation, and the guys together joyfully recalled some places, events, memorable to their heart. I finally saw a smile on the face of my buddy. And at that moment I realized why we take posters and go out into the street shouting “no war”. Not for ourselves. But for those who are there, at war. And all the words of support are needed now by those who are in Ukraine now.
And I realized that these voices of people from the rallies can be recorded, and then sent by messages to those for whom it is important to see and listen.
I made a playlist, to make it easy to send to loved ones. And it worked for a moment. It resonated.
I ask you, people completely unknown to me, to join my project “Letters to Ukraine”. No matter what language you speak. If you don’t want to speak you can dance, sing, play an instrument, do anything you can to show your support to Ukrainians.
If you live in New York please contact me (IG: @khairovaphoto), I will come and record your appeal. If you live in another city or country, I will help you with the recording. I am very grateful to those who have already responded, you can’t even imagine how much your words mean for people in Ukraine. And I will be grateful to all those who accept my invitation and send their letters to Ukraine. I am sure that only together we can stop this war.
Beautiful New Yorkers
