About Katya Evdokimova

Katya Evdokimova is a professional photographer who lives and works in the UK and Europe. After earning her BA from University College London in 1999, she has since 2003 found herself captivated by and single-mindedly committed to the medium of photography.

In 2006 her work was chosen for the cover of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment as one of four Penguin Classics reprints that year. Her photographs have been published in many publications such as British Journal of Photography, The Independent, DayFour, Light and Lens: Photography of the Digital Age by Focal Press, as well as being part of a permanent collection at Kyosato Museum of Photographic Arts, Japan.

She has been awarded multiple photographic awards among which Honourable Mention at Urban Photo Awards, 2017, Italy; Nominee at Photogrvphy Grant, 2nd Edition, 2017; Honourable Mention, IPA, 'Family of Man', US; Professional Nominee for 1st Fine Art Photography Awards, 2015; Honourable Mention for Monochrome Awards, 2015; winner at Photo Life's Image International, Canada, in 2010; Professional Photographer of the Year in Portrait category in 2006 by Professional Photography Magazine, UK; semi-finalist in the Hasselblad Masters Awards; and shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Awards in 2008.
In 2008 she was also the recipient of the grand prize for the exhibition organised by the British Council in Bogota, Colombia.


"In the technical aspect of my approach, I try to remain within the boundaries of a traditional photography as much as possible. I am equally a strong advocate of the phrase “picture is worth a thousand words” and therefore try to make the viewers feel as though the only interpretation they can give to the context is the one found within their own imagination."
