My name is Tatiana Ilina,
I am a documentary photographer, photojournalist and filmmaker.
I have worked in this field for more than 12 years. Today I am based in New York City.
I have traveled around the world, working in different countries, creating social documentaries and art projects allowing me to look at things from the other side.
People have always interested mostly, helping me to explore extraordinary life stories about exceptional abilities.
After getting a higher journalist education, I graduated from Rodchenko Moscow School of Photography and Media Arts. Subsequently, I completed my degree at ESEC Professional School in the field of film and audiovisual techniques.
I am interested in social activities, which enable me to develop and transform the emotional sense of my vision into reality.
I have been working continuously, creating a large number of projects to help different social and public organizations.
I have discovered important things which I would not have expected to be true.
These things exist inside and outside of me until I can visualize them.
I want to believe that my life will be filled with different faces, emotions and characters which I am eager to share with audience through my work.
