Kristina Sergeeva (b.1997) is a documentary photographer from Russia, born and raised in the United Arab Emirates, and is currently based in Dubai.
Her interest lies in hidden narratives, identity, the landscape, and secrecy. Drawn from personal family stories about the Soviet Era that she has not experienced herself, her work often explores the intricacies of Russian history. After five years abroad, she moved back to the UAE in 2020 and found a landscape that appeared unrecognisable to that of her childhood memories.
In an attempt to connect with both cultures and understand the meaning of 'home', she explores the notion of belonging as a young Russian woman in the Middle East. Kristina graduated with an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from London College of Communication in 2019. Her work has been published in The Guardian Newspaper, The Telegraph Magazine and Point 51 Magazine.
Kristina co-founded In Conversation With - a platform dedicated to visual conversations with other contributing artists and photographers around the world.
