Kristina Sergeeva is a Russian documentary photographer, born (1997) and raised in the Middle East, and is currently based in Dubai. Her interest lies in telling visual stories about hidden histories, family, spaces, environments, and secrecy. Drawn from personal family stories about the Soviet Era that she has not experienced herself, her work explores the intricacies of Russian history. In an attempt to discover her homeland, she has begun to unpack the complexities of the past system that she knew only through her family stories. To familiarise herself with the past of her country and the Cold War, Kristina has explored a closed town, which until this day remains an extreme example of the Soviet regime. Kristina’s most recent body of work, Mailbox44 questions how an environment has shaped and impacted the mentality of its residents from its past until this day.

Kristina has graduated with a First Class in Bachelor of Photography from Leeds Arts University in 2018. She has achieved a Distinction in Masters of Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at UAL: London College of Communication in 2019.

Kristina co-founded In Conversation With - a platform dedicated to visual conversations with other contributing artists and photographers around the world.

Based between Dubai, Russia and London.
