I am originally from Russia, Volgograd, but live in Ireland for the last 15 years. I am currently a student of MFA Photography at Ulster University in Belfast. My photographic practice revolves mainly around identity and transitional stages which I explore through portraiture. Being a mother I get my inspirations from my children whose growing and changing personalities make me want to document these important moment. I am also questioning my own identity as a Russian person who lives abroad for so long and has a need to find answers about my cultural belonging. I am currently working on a project that examines Russian diaspora living in Ireland.
