Anastasia Khoroshilova is a Russian photographer who devotedly explores various segments of contemporary Russia from a well-articulated socio-political perspective. By engaging traditional genres of portraiture and landscape, she speaks about the hardship of daily reality found in distant regions of this vast country. Her startling photographs function as significant tools for a proper articulation of the past and can be perceived in a broader context of the culture of remembrance.
Khoroshilova teaches at the Rodchenko Moscow School of Photography and Multimedia, and her work was shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale in 2011.
