STUDY: TO HAVE FUN WITH FRIENDS – USA
In 2013, Alexandra Gordienko launched first issue of Marfa Journal, an art & fashion magazine which acts as a kind of a travel document in itself - a journal of Lex and the closest people in her life on the road, off the road, on camera and behind the camera. "My BFF Jen and I spent the whole summer of 2011 in America. It's not like we even wanted to go - it just happened. We were both in school, and had to gain work experience so we ended up in the States, the land of opportunities and fast food.
