The Art of Letting Go…

Opening Reception first Friday February 5th 6PM  


Yelena Yeva (Reporyeva) was born and raised in Odessa, Ukraine. From early childhood she developed a love for the arts. By the age of twelve, she recognized that she had a passion for Photography. She began her modeling and acting career in Odessa and attended the College of Physical Education.

The love for Photography was always with her. 

Attending performances of New York City Ballet gave her the realization that ballet was an art form with infinite images that a camera could immortalize.

Yelena Yeva learned her craft from both sides of the camera and from the finest and most professional teachers because nothing less would have satisfied her. She has a unique ability to capture a moment, an image, an inspiration that she is able to see and grasp at its culmination.

Yelena has become an established photographer whose work has been published in magazines internationally, notably in Europe, South America, the Caribbean, and the United States.

Peter Greenberg invited Yelena to join him as photographer on his television production of “The Royal Peru,” a tour of that beautiful country in which the President and First Lady served as hosts and guides. But that is another story…

Recently Yelena has relocated from NYC after living there for 20 years to raise her two kids in the beautiful neighborhoods of Vestal.

“I don’t take pictures I capture Moments.” — Yelena Yeva.

“We are the ones who complicate the possible simplicity of the relation one to another.

We are who we are! Acceptance will lead us to Understanding…to Simplicity and Happiness. Let Go and You Find  What You Really Want.” –Yelena Yeva.
