Iana Tokarchuk
Photographer

I was born in the USSR. Currently I live and work in Kiev, Ukraine. My childhood was marked by immersion in art, as I painted ceaselessly from a very young age. At some point I also began writing short stories and plays. This made me pay particular attention to narration in any visual art I do, as an image always tells a story (or stories) to its spectator.

When I was 14 my father gave me and my sister cameras as a present, and by the age of 18 I firmly decided that this is what I want to associate my life with. For 5 years I have been working in fashion photography with my twin-sister, but now we work mostly separately.

Recently I started experimenting with filmmaking and diversifying into different genres of photography.
