Anastasia has been looking through a camera from a very young age as she documented life around her as well as her own life. Having a zest for life and meeting new people. She has a deep interest in challenging boundaries, steering away from the so called ‘normal’ that societies inculcate within us. Her questioning drives and gravitates her to sometimes photographing the marginalised, stigmatised and in that breathe the ‘Vulnerable’ – turning her representation into a somewhat positive, image of beauty. “Isn’t Vulnerability a pure honest state of being”? ….she question. “Are we our real/honest self”.
Anastasia has qualifications in Photography, Social Anthropology and an MA in Visual Anthropology, and is considering to do her Phd in photography, in the UK. Her 2 evident styles are ‘Social documentary & Fine art’

At present I have been working on publishing a book of all Naked Britain Images, as well as behind the scenes pictures, images that many don’t get to see.
Look out for a video on the making of Naked Britain – where I have been capturing footage of my models during my shoots.
