My name is Marta Romashina, I am a photographer and journalist with a flair for fashion. I was born in Penza, Russia and grew up in Prague, Czechia. I pursued my undergraduate degree in fashion marketing at Raffles Design Institute in Shaghai. I have a Master's in Fashion Buying from Polimoda school in Florence, Italy. I was lucky to work with several talented designers, like Hussein Chalayan, across Europe and Asia while organizing fashion shows including Shanghai and Paris Fashion Week.

 

Informed by my background in the fashion business, my photography practice combines academic research with an interest in social issues. Five years of life in Asia greatly influenced my aesthetic: bright colors, unusual angles, symbolism and a sense of surreality. 

 

I currently have a production team and been working on recent commercial projects with my dear friend and colleague Oleg Tarasenko. Our creations are very poetic, enchanting and at the same time, I also like to bring contemporary culture to the narrative. 

 

I absolutely love being able to travel the world (I've been to 46 countries and lived in 7) to gain new perspectives, try new flavours and document it with high-end photography along the way to share with my wanderlust followers. As a leader in travel industry, I write articles for several publications, including L'Officiel and Elle magazines, where I am a regular contributor.
