Hello, my name’s Anna. I was born in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on the 9th of October 1976. After graduating from high school I moved to Omsk, Russia, obtained a Bachelor degree in Psychology in Omsk State University F.M. Dostoevsky. At present I’m working as a psychologist in Omsk Regional Center for Disaster Medicine. I have got two sons, 12 and 15 years old. Photography has always captured my imagination, however I became serious about it rather late in life. In mostly cowardly manner, hoping that digital camera will make the artist’s fate easier, in 2008 I bought my first SLR camera. Two years of my persistent tryouts were far from satisfactory and I went to School of Photography and Multimedia by Vasily Melnichenko. As I still consider myself a newcomer to photography I’m more courageous taking pictures of my family members.

The project “Private History of Games” was completed due to technical issues. The main characters became teenagers. Now their games are hidden and not visually expressed. I hope to continue “History of Games” and to make new project "Cabbages and Kings" about our parents.
