Kristina Varaksina


Location: London

Russian-born Kristina Varaksina has resided in the USA since 2010 and currently is looking to relocate to London.
Kristina is recipient of multiple prestigious photography awards, like Prix de la Photographie, Communications Arts Photography Annual, Int’l Photography Awards, PDN Faces, and many more.
Varaksina’s focus is to capture human emotion and the psychological impressions of her subjects' mind – permitting the characters to project their internal reality. Recently, Aesthetica magazine suggests ‘Varaksina's personal works are etherial, projecting the psyche onto the corners of a room... Through a conscientious attention to light and a soft palette these allegories come to life
and absorb the viewer into their microcosm’.
Kristina Varaksina is represented by Peter Bailey agency in London and WIB agency in New York.
Her fine-art work can be found in several galleries around the globe: Themes+Projects San Francisco, Brownie Shanghai, Lumas Berlin.
