About me

Irina is a SW London based fashion and portrait photographer that has a conceptual approach to her work. Her passion for photography was born out of a need to escape reality and it has become her way of expressing herself. She graduated in 2013 with a Foundation Degree in Arts - Professional Photography from The City of Westminster College . She exhibited her work several times as part of the Free Range Art Show @Truman Brewery . Fascinated by dance , the bound human body and capturing movement, she photographs professional models, dancers as well as actors. She takes inspiration from the surrealist and expressionist movements. She strives to communicate a certain mood through her images and create painterly , graphic and rather quirky photography.
