Mariya Ustymenko

Location: South East London

London based Visual Artist. Freelance Arts Administrator. Photographer.

In my artistic practice, I use analogue photography to create work ranging from installation to live performance. Highly aware of the limitations associated with vintage film cameras, I explore the possibilities offered by these innate constraints.

Current project Fear of Disappearance is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
