Photographer working in junction of documentary and art photography
Irina was born in Yaroslavl in 1982. In 2006 she graduated from the Yaroslavl State Technical University with a degree in Architecture with a specialization in Reconstruction and Restoration. Since 2007 she has been living and working in Moscow. Leaving the profession of an architect, Irina found her creative potential in photography and since 2019 she began to study, work, take part in exhibitions and publications.
A person became the main theme of creative research. The author is interested in the interaction of people with each other, the connection between the inner and outer world. Working with archives and documentary observation allow Irina to build an architecture of memory — to fix the present and restore the past. By carefully collecting details and discovering connections, Irina reveals the supporting structures of a person’s living space and role of a person in it.
