Kristina Varaksina


New York City, NY, USA

Russian-born Kristina Varaksina has resided in the USA since 2010 and currently lives and works in New York. Kristina is recipient of multiple prestigious photography awards, like Prix de la Photographie, Communications Arts Photography Annual, Int’l Photography Awards, PDN Faces, and many more.

Varaksina’s focus is to capture human emotion and the psychological impressions of her subjects' mind – permitting the characters to project their internal reality. Recently, Aesthetica magazine suggests ‘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’.

Kristina Varaksina is represented by WIB agency, who manages her fashion and commercial work. Her fine-art work can be found in several galleries around the globe:Themes+Projects San Francisco, Cumberland Nashville, Brownie Shanghai, Lumas Berlin.
