Anait Sagoyan
Photographer, Photojournalist
M. A. Eastern European Cultural Studies, University of Potsdam
Born 1986 in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Based in Berlin, Germany. Developed an interest in photography at a young age and was soon put in charge of the family camera. What began as an interest in observing and recording the world, has more recently become a narrative-driven portrayal of the living.
I chose cinema as the main emphasis at the University, wrote scientific works on Alexei Balabanov’s films, and my Master’s thesis was focused on Andrei Tarkovsky’s “Solaris”, where I analyzed the visuals and director’s compositional decisions. So basically, I saw the video sequence as still frames. After receiving an MA degree, I decided to go deeper into photography and stayed there.
Have been published with photo reports and articles in Russian media resources.
LensCulture featured photographer.
