BIOGRAPHY

Natalia Serzhanova is a photographer and visual artist specialising in conceptual self-portrait photography and living in Milan, Italy.

From the moment Natalia got her first computer in adolescence she became interested in digital image manipulation and photo retouching, while she made her first attempts at photography since she was a child using her younger brother as a model. Since her childhood Natalia was also involved in sports and music, having graduated from a music school (piano classes).

After graduating from university with a degree in Sport Management, she worked for several years as a manager until in 2012, when after moving to Milan, she dedicated herself entirely to photography.

Starting out as a fashion photographer, but influenced by the processes in society and her personal life, she decided to devote herself to conceptual fine art photography. 

In her work she mainly explores human psychology, social processes and the meaning of being human, its relationship with nature.
