My name is Anastasia...

     I am a passionate photographer, explorer, and writer. I travel as much as possible throughout the year to pursue the beautiful landscapes of the planet, and to capture stories that might inspire others to consider their relationship with nature. My portfolio aims to inspire the preservation of wild places, while simultaneously encouraging others to learn more and explore them for themselves. 

     Working with both analogue and digital mediums, I am eager to travel the world and experience different cultures and landscapes. My own Greek culture has been a huge inspiration in my art. After living in Greece for a couple of years, I discovered a deep deference for how little I knew about the rest of the world, and how ready I was to learn about it.

     The camera has always been the vehicle in my search for exploration and understanding. The search never ends, because there’s always more to know.. I hope you’ll stick around to see what I find.
