About Olga Ingurazova

Olga Ingurazova is a freelance documentary photographer with a background in international relations and economics based in Moscow, Russia. After years of working in the tourism industry, she became active as a photographer and a visual journalist, documenting post-conflict recovery and the aftermath of separatist movements in the Caucasus.
In 2015 she was named to the shortlist of Magnum Photo’s "30 under 30" list of emerging documentary photographers, and was listed as one of Photo Boite’s “30 under 30 women photographers” to watch.
Currently she is focused on personal long-term documentary projects, working in both photography and multimedia. At the center of her attention are the effects of social and environmental processes on peoples’ lives.
