Artist Anastasia Savinova travels the world and takes a little piece of each place with her. Whether it’s the cities’ architecture, local flavor, bars, shops, flea markets, or every day life, Anastasia looks for a commonality in every place of habitation and captures it through pictures. She is searching for that city’s “genius loci”— their distinct atmosphere or protective spirit of a place.
