ELENA BEREGATNOVA (1982) is a Russian-born documentary and art photographer based in Moscow. She graduated from Rodchenko Art School and Fotografika Academy and has been photographing for over 10 years. Her works are being exhibited and published internationally. Photography for Elena is the way to explore the world, watching for social life, searching for something unusual in the ordinary reality. Today the focus of Elena’s photographic interests in the documentary photography is located in the sphere of future manifestation in the present life, modern art and its influence on the society, consumerism tendencies, youth culture and its transformation, urbanism and the state of human loneliness in the big city. She uses the practice of synthesis for researching the trends in social life development. The priorities in the art photography are visual research of human beauty, its changes over time, abstract and minimalistic photography. In 2020-2021 she became a member of the Russian Union of Art Photographers and the Eurasian Art Union that opened up additional opportunities to publicize the art of photography in Russia.
