Anna is a photographer who focusses her lens on people and places undergoing transition and change. Originally from the Far-Eastern Russia, Anna currently lives and works between the West Coast of Wales and Cambridge. Her work responds to such diverse subjects as the physical environment, identity and memory. Transition remains the common thread that embraces this diversity within her work. Anna’s approach is multi-media and often involves sound, text, moving and still images.
Her most recent work ‘Lest it should fade’ is a visual and sound reflection on the decline of the bees and their habitats worldwide. This project is part of INK collective work exhibited at Diffusion 2021 International Photography festival. As artist-in-residence at the Kelvedon Hatch Cold War Bunker (2020-2021), Anna uses her family’s and the bunker’s archives to explore personal and collective memories of the Cold War. Her work “Bunker Diaries” won the Shutter Hub Portfolio Award at FORMAT 2021.
