Elena Tyutina (b.1986) is a Ukrainian-born photographer based in Tokyo working in the field of Fine Art and Fashion photography.
Elena was introduced to photography from the early childhood. Her father who served as a military photographer during the times when Soviet Union still existed would often expose her to various visual practices available at the time. Her strong affinity with nature and poetic attraction to solitude, often characteristic to what is known as a Russian soul, has shaped Elena’s photographic vision. For her combining seemingly unrelated elements in her practice brings freedom of a true creativity.
Elena graduated from the SPEOS International Photographic Institute in Paris with MA in Photography. She is a recipient of several awards and honorable mentions from international photography competitions incl. Tokyo International Photography Awards, The Prix de la Photographie, Paris etc. Her work has been exhibited in group shows and photographic festivals, including Les Rencontres d’Arles in France, Révélations au Grand Palais, Kyotographie in Japan etc. Elena’s commercial photographic assignments have been featured in international fashion and lifestyle publications.
