CV

I was born and grew up in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. I studied in Rostov State University and have a master’s degree in Applied Mathematics. Just right after my graduation in 2011 I moved to Zürich, Switzerland, following my husband who got a job in Google. Since then I became interested in photography and have produced two photo projects, “A Google Wife” (the book was published by Dalpine), and “How I tried to convince my husband to have children”, which was completed as a photobook dummy, and been working on a number of personal photography projects. My books have been shortlisted or awarded at such festivals like: UNSEEN DUMMY AWARD, FLIP PHOTOBOOK AWARD, AUTHOR BOOK AWARD at Les Rencontres de la photographie, FIEBRE DUMMY AWARD, PHOTOBOOX AWARD etc.
