She began her journey behind the lens in her early twenties but only later, while already working in social housing, she started engaging more deeply in documentary photography.

She attended several international workshops with great photographers like Davide Monteleone (at Rodchenko Artschool in Moscow), Pietro Paolini and Rocco Rorandelli of TerraProject collective (at Fotodepartment, St. Petersburg), the French photographer Olivier Jobard and Alessandro Gandolfi of Parallelo Zero.

Her works have been shown in collective and solo exhibitions in Italy and in 2013 her project “Zvezdnaya – Starlight Station” took part in the group exhibition “On the block”, curated by Egor Rogalev at New Holland Cultural Center, Saint Petersburg, Russia.

In 2016 she has been selected to partecipate in an artist residency at Waaw, in Saint Louis, Senegal. 

In 2017 and again in 2018 she has been shortlisted for the Kolga Photo Awards (Tbilisi, Georgia).
