BIOGRAPHY

Originally from Vienna, Austria, Krystina lives in London, UK. She took up analog photography in the early 1990s when studying Fine Art (sculpture & installation). She worked in independent film and urban regeneration before returning to photography in 2007. Since then her focus has been on exploring the visual language of urban spaces and materials through photography. 
Krystina’s works have won national and international competitions and been selected for solo and group exhibitions. Her works feature in several independently and self-published photobooks, three of them in collaboration with another photographer / artist. Many of her works feature in various international photographic magazines, in print and on-line. 
Her limited edition prints are in private collections in the US, UK, Australia and various European countries.
