Alina Araslanova

Artist-photographer
Lives in Kiev, Ukraine


I was born in Ukraine, in the city of Kharkov, studied and worked in marketing and advertising for 20 years.


After the birth of my second daughter, I decided to change my path in order to spend more time with my children and also to be able to finally realize my dream. I’ve always wanted to become an artist, but I never had the courage to fulfill this dream. While staying full time with my children, I finally had the time and space to focus on my creativity and on psychological projects.


I took my first lessons at the Kiev School of Photography in 2018.
In 2019 I have had my first exhibition at the international photo fair — Kyiv Photo.


Photography for me is a revelation and a great courage. I feel that photography is the perfect medium for expressing myself. Sometimes one photograph can tell more than a thousand words.
