Highway Oases by Christina Storozkova

Christina Storozkova

Christina graduated from the University of Florida in 2012 and attended the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies in Daytona Beach in 2013. When she’s not on the road, you will find her riding horses, shooting guns or collecting wine. Her clients include CMYK Magazine, Maxim, Huffington Post and Habitat for Humanity.

She is a “Perestroika” baby, who was allowed to be fascinated by American culture all the way from Russia largely through Hollywood movies and pop music videos. Christina writes on her experiences: “With a mind already primed for propaganda, I had no hesitation accepting the fantasy, unaware that America not only tolerates propagation of this dream but that its entire economy is dependent upon it. Little did I realise that the American Dream had long been dead if it ever existed at all. In 1996, the zombie capitalist playground known as Central Florida became my home. I was welcomed by strip malls, convenience stores, fast food establishments, family friendly chain restaurants, and gas stations where 24 hours a day I was free to buy a T-shirt that said ‘GOD DON’T MAKE NO TRASH.'”
