Anastasia Hexahedron set to work on her latest series "The Mist" not with a concept in mind but by accident. Having studied through the night into the early morning she got up for a drink of water. Looking out of the window and seeing only an absolute nothingness as the heaviest of fogs covered her city of Yaroslavl, Russia, she grabbed her camera and wandered around the waking dawn dream state of a city appearing abandoned.

Everyone else feels pale and tired after looking through one of his photo shoots.
