As a student, Alexandra Gataeva ’20 (Fine Art Photography) exhibited her work in museums, galleries and art centers around the world.
One summer, Gataeva was featured in an online exhibit at Black Box Gallery in Portland, Ore. and in physical shows at Blank Wall Gallery in Athens, Greece; Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts; Praxis Photo Arts Center in Minneapolis, Minn.; and Midwest Center for Photography in Wichita, Kan. Each had different pieces, showcasing Gataeva’s wide body of work.
“I have the freedom to express myself and ideas or issues. I use photography in an intuitive and also a conceptual way,” Gataeva said. “Photography is something I’m passionate about because of all of the technology involved in it and the industry is constantly evolving.”
Gataeva began entering her photography in exhibition calls for entry focused on instant film photography, monochromatic photography, earth elements, landscape and architecture — all elements and mediums she prefers, based on her travels to vast, isolated locations.
