My name is Masha and I have been a photographer for most of my life. After moving from Ukraine to America, I became very fascinated by other cultural traditions which I experienced while growing up in New York City. I began capturing people's diversity with my camera in order to preserve their unique stories.
For me it is very important to keep these cultures alive in such a globalized world that sometimes may seem homogenous. I enjoy showing the reality of life in my photographs be it beautiful or ugly.I hope to show the importance of preserving indigenous traditions and to inspire others with my work.
