Alina is a Ukrainian - German freelance photographer based in Berlin works on self-chosen topics that deal with the difficult living conditions in which people in cities around the world live. She explores what is "home" and all the types of domiciliation worldwide.
Through her work she challenges our understanding of different realities in everyday city life. Intuitively, she visualizes human intimacy in our most intimate space and connects everyday life being very close to the people she comes across. By creating images that invite the audience to an unfamiliar and new worlds, and opens the doors between us and people we don’t know.
She visited many marginalized and displaced communities around the world and is fascinated by the simple grace and beauty that all homes have in common around the world. Working as a single mother and travelling together with her small child makes her feel at home in the places she visits.
