"I am a photographer based between Dublin, London and Vilnius. I am working on projects mostly exploring life of Post-Soviet society in Lithuania and around Europe. Apart from that I am looking into social issues in the countries I am visiting.
Through photography medium I am aiming to express the effects that modern life has on me and on the society we live in."
The central focus of Svetlana's work is on people. Therefore, most of her projects are portrait based. Svetlana's practice consists of colour and black and white photographs that are taken on digital camera and are digitally processed. Slideshows, photo books and video installations are used in her work too.
Print portfolio available on request.
Apart from own ongoing projects, Svetlana successfully worked in commercial field as portrait/documentary photographer.
