Maria Tkachenko (1989)  — artist from Volgograd. Now live in St. Petersburg, studying at the Docdocdoc school of contemporary photography on a post-documentary course. Completed the project photography laboratory and the Nizina photobook course.

I explore personal themes, study trauma and its impact on the present. My art is spontaneous, this is my diary.
