Capturing the spirit of real people, who love, laugh, create, share time together, and weather life’s challenges with dignity and humor.
A visual storyteller, Kristina’s still and film work embodies an authentic emotional connection with her subjects, a quirky sense of humor and a creative aesthetic rooted in photojournalism and design. Her passion is to capture the simplest moments of humans being, the unseen heroes, the creators, the makers, the marginalized, those in the midst of struggles and those who’ve overcome them, and to do so with dignity, empathy and humor.
Originating from Chicago, Kristina has a background in design, branding and marketing communications. After receiving a B.F.A. in visual communications, she worked as a freelance art director and designer before starting her photography career as a photojournalist.
