Maria is an internationally published visual artist, who channels her love of shape, light and motion into unique photo and video pieces. She’s been taking interest in art since early age, but it wasn't until she got her first camera in college that she realized where her true passion lies. She moved to the US from Russia at the age 25 to pursue photography and discover the vibrant diversity the country and New York has to offer. Maria has been working closely with New York dance community to produce promotional and educational pieces both for performers and dance companies. Her unique eye for movement, understanding of dance form and creative interpretation make her photographs into centerpieces of attention. She’s passionate about combining art forms and collaborating with artists from other disciplines. Some of her clients include Maria Torres foundation, Cecilia Marta dance, ETD, Tigerlily Foundation for Breast Cancer, Oppenheimer funds and more.
