Olga Rook is a photographer born in Moscow and currently living in Rotterdam. She has been intrigued by perception, imagination and time.
Before turning to photographic art Olga obtained her master’s and PhD degrees in Medieval and
Early Modern History and did research in Renaissance culture. A historian’s habit of focusing on the
hazy texture of remote times while being rooted in the present moment helps her reflect on the limits of everyday perception. Her photography is about the metaphors and illusive worlds discovered and
constructed through reflection and imagination.
