About

Tatiana Ilina

My name is Tatiana Ilina,

I am a professional 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 with different social and public organizations.

Sometimes art can change how people see the world but I want to change how the world sees people.
