Julia Abzaltdinova
Julia Abzaltdinova, born 1984, lives and works in Moscow, Russia.

Julia's main themes are national identity representation and traces of human influence on the natural landscape. Studying at the Rodchenko Moscow School of Photography and Multimedia, Julia began her first project "The Big Game" (2010-2016) - a six-year visual study. The territory of Greater Sochi (Russia) is shown as a space of global changes during the preparation for the XXII Olympic Winter Games. Going deeper into the topic Julia touches such problems as mythology of place and time, quasi-patriotism, archeology of modern society and traces of human activity. Personal project exhibition was presented in 7 cities of Russia (2017-2018), at the festival of modern photography Presence (St. Petersburg, 2017) and at the Baltic Biennial of the photo (Kaliningrad, 2017).

Expanding the theme of national identity representation Julia proceeds to the problems of self-identification of a modern office person in her project «Chad» (2018). In the project "Invisible life of plants" (2014) Julia observes the biotic and abiotic factors in the formation of urban life in Krasnoyarsk, delving into the theme of traces of human influence on the natural landscape.

Julia works in Moscow, Sochi and the Urals.
