Hello, It’s me

Natasha Sharapova is a documentary photographer and storyteller from Moscow, Russia.

She made her first stories in her hometown, but later in 2016 she left to document the southern part of the Caucasus region. She is inspired by the life stories of common people and places that shouldn’t be forgotten.

Natasha mostly works in places remote from big cities and settlements, where traditions win knowledge, and information is so important that it still can save one’s life. Most of all, she is concerned with the issues of inequality, women’s rights and freedom of choice.
