Alina Fedorenko was born in 1985 in the historic city of Lviv, Ukraine, and grew up in Berlin, Germany. She studied Fashion Design in London. After a few years in London she returned to Germany and changed focus. Alina reinvented herself and ultimately re-started from scratch her Studies, and quickly found a way to Photography.
" My photography is very bright and rich of colors, it is mostly about the people who find a way to live in difficult enviromental conditions. Most of my work concentrate on daily moments, situations which life creates in the daily life of people. I try to reflect life of people who have less possibilities in life in different countries around the world.
What makes my work special and distinguish me from other photographers is the fact that I´m a single Mother travelling and working together with my small child (2,5 years old). My child is involved in my process and gives me a total new perspective of the people we come across, which is an important part how my work developed in the last year. I try to work constantly on my own found projects. "
Alina was part for the 30 years Edition of Eddie Adams Workshop 2017
