Valeriya Vygodnaya is Russian born photographer who lives and works in London. After moving to London she had a unique chance to explore Vogue’s library archive and to study photography at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and London College of Communications.
Valeriya’s musical and acting background helps her to explore and understand psychology of the performer on the stage, in front of the camera and behind the scenes. She treats each shoot as an adventure and experiment, carefully prepared but leaving a space for a chance and very special “decisive moment”.
Her work has been exhibited in London and Saint Petersburg with limited editions of her silver-gelatin prints being held in private collections. In 2011 she teamed up with her friends and established the concept photography boutique “Double Vie.”
