Elena Anosova

Elena Anosova is a visual artist working with documentary photography, video, archive, and installations. 
Originally hailing from the region of Baikal (Russia, Siberia), she is currently based in Moscow and Irkutsk. 

She is member of MAPS.
In 2016 she graduated from Rodchenko Art School (Moscow) and already has participated in a number
of national and international projects and exhibitions. She teaches visual arts (Moscow and S.Peterburg)
at Rodchenko Art School, School of Visual Arts, The Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy
and Public Administration, Academy Fotografika.
The most important part of her professional activities is devoted to personal, long-term projects that are centered
around lives in closed institutions, small communities, and isolation. The impulse of research of such themes arose
in a reflection of her teenage period spent at the closed rehabilitation boarding school. Also, Elena Anosova works
with subjects of borders, identity and collective memory in the territory of Siberia, Far North, Russian Far East
and Baltic Sea borderlands. 
Anosova has been a winner of various competitions. She is a recipient of the World Press Photo, Center ProjectLensCulture
World.Report Award and others. Her work has been published around the world including National Geographic (USA).
