Artist’s Bio:

Maria Plotnikova: Moscow, Russia

Born in 1984 in Moscow. Studied philology in Moscow State Pedagogical University. During the studies I started working as a photographer, gradually led to my favorite genre, the sports photography. In 2006 – 2010 I worked exclusively as a sports photographer in the various media of Moscow. In 2007 graduated from the annual photojournalism course at Moscow State University. The result of this work in sports photography were different awards in Russian contests of photojournalism. In 2010 my husband and I moved to Buenos Aires, where are living up till now. In Latin America, I became a freelance artist and interested in the genre of street photography. Having the opportunity to travel around the continent, for two years now, I don´t stop to shoot in search of my own style of street photography. In 2012 I was short-listed in the London Festival of photography and became a finalist of the Moscow Festival of street photography. Since 2012 I’m a member of the international collective Street Photographers .
