Russian-born Kristina Varaksina has resided in the USA since 2010 and currently lives and works in New York.

Varaksina’s focus is to capture human emotion and the psychological impressions of her subjects' mind – permitting the characters to project their internal reality. Works undertaken are keen to explore a female and child perspective, evoking their thoughts, dreams and hopes.

Recently, Aesthetica magazine suggest ‘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’.



Varaksina has been the recipient of a number of awards including:

Int'l Photography Awards 2015. 1st Place in Beauty category

APA SF Something Personal 2014 1st Place

PDN's Emerging Photographer Summer 2015 issue

Communication Arts Award of Excellence 2014

Int'l Photography Awards 2015. 2nd Place in Children category
