Anna Shilonosova is a London-based photographer and a multidisciplinary artist primarily working with analogue and digital photography.

Anna has extensive experience working in studio setting as well as
in the field. Currently her main professional focus is on object photography, including high resolution jewellery and museum exhibits photography,
and environmental portraits. Among the clients Anna is proud to have worked with are English Heritage, the Koppel Project and Cluster Jewellery project. She also does sports photography and documents performances
and exhibitions.

As an artist, Anna is interested in exploring a person's perception
of their vulnerability, both mental and physical, especially in such trying periods of life as moving to other countries, reliving the generational trauma,
or exploring one's identity, be it their gender or their nationality.

Instability, uncertainty and at the same time inner silence are the features
of liminal spaces Anna is inherently drawn to, and this attention
to such places can be seen in almost still life like landscape photographs
that appear in the artist's projects.

Having been raised in the tumultuous last years of the Soviet Union
and subsequent Perestroika period Russia, Anna feels a strong urge
to search for locations where calmness offers space to be with your instability and find new strengths to lean on.
