About the Artist

Originally from Saint Petersburg, Russia, Katya Evdokimova is a professional photographer who lives and works in the UK and Europe. After earning her BA from University College London in 1999, she has since 2003 found herself captivated by and single-mindedly committed to the medium of photography. Self-taught, she has since had her work exhibited in multiple shows around the world including The Royal Photographic Society, ‘Selected Images: 1854 – 2012’ as part of Bristol Festival of Photography, solo exhibition at HayHill Gallery, Cork St in London, in 2009, at Musée de L’Elysée’s, Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2007, and Cooper Union, New York.
In 2006 her work was chosen for the cover of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment as one of four Penguin Classics reprints that year. Her photographs have been published in many publications such as British Journal of Photography, The Independent, DayFour, Light and Lens: Photography of the Digital Age by Focal Press, as well as being part of a permanent collection at Kyosato Museum of Photographic Arts, Japan.
She has been awarded multiple photographic awards, most recently winner at Photo Life's Image International, Canada, in 2010; Professional Photographer of the Year in Portrait category in 2006 by Professional Photography Magazine, UK; semi-finalist in the Hasselblad Masters Awards; and shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Awards in 2008. In 2008 she was also the recipient of the grand prize for the exhibition organised by the British Council in Bogotá, Colombia.
