My name is Mira Knott and I want to make magic.
I'm a stranger from a different land.
I am based in Cobourg, Ontario.
The magician behind the lens
I'm a stranger in a foreign land and a guest in my homeland. I was born and raised in Ukraine - country with an ancient culture and history.
I am inspired by its folklore, stories, love of freedom.
My roots have been inspiring me.
I learned to take photos when I was at university studying to become a journalist. I didn't like the idea of telling exciting news that were often lies. But I loved the magic of stories from my literature and fine art classes.
I wanted to make something inspiring and encouraging - an escape from the daily ordinary life.
I learnt color and composition by watching movies. Fantasy and romantic comedies, Disney and Marvel, shows based on my favourite books, historical dramas.. They all taught me how to tell a story and constantly inspire me.
I rely highly on my intuition. I stand firmly in my faith.
I'm a romantic at heart who wants to be a wizard.
And what about my dogs??
