Marina Tsaregorodtseva is a Still life and Portrait Photographer who currently lives and works in London, United Kingdom. She was born in Russia in 1978. Her way to photography was nonlinear. She completed a degree in accounting and finance in 2000. Relocated to the UK in 2009 through the work transfer.
Moving to another country had a huge impact on her life: loneliness, inability to share experiences and impressions with close family kind of forced her to restrain personal feelings. This is how she came to photography a few years ago. Largely, she is self-taught — started taking photos for her own pleasure, soon it became her choice of expression. “A vision can come from a sight, a memory, a feeling, it always turns into a path, breaching out through the core of our certitudes”. The photographer is interested in the relation between ordinary objects and how they are perceived. She is creating new meaning by taking cues from fine art, abstract forms, texture, light and shadows. Through her photographs she attempts to engage a spectator in extracting the hidden beauty found in natural and manmade environments.
Her works were shown in international group exhibitions.
