Born in Saint Petersburg in 1980. Based between Switzerland and France.
My current project, State Business, focuses on the conflict arms trade industry and the environments in which it operates.
Between 2007-2010 I worked in Russia and North Caucasus on "File-126" a project about the abductions of civilians during the Russian counter-terrorism regime.
My work has been published in XXI, NYTimes, Yvi, and Esquire and exhibited by the Open Society Foundation, Paris Photo, Slideluck Show, Grande Plage and Platform 2012 Fotomuseum Winterthur among others.
My background is in art history with course work in Genocide Studies at Copenhagen University and a MA level year from the Danish Media and Journalism School. In 2011, I spent a year as artist in residency at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, France.
