Alina fall in love with photography in the last millennium when color photography was still a wonder, and the process of printing black & white photos in the bathroom was nearly as complicated as flying a space ship.

As a paleontology student at St. Petersburg University, she traveled to Crimea many times and her interest in fossilized fauna turned to the surrounding mountains and ruins. The result is yearly photo exhibitions in the University and publication in magazines.

She polished her skills by joining the Petersburg Society of Journalists and taking photo classes at the Moscow Academy of International Cooperation, which gave rise to participation in a series of exhibitions.

The author believes in the importance of "film" photography. All of her photographs are produced from negatives unenhanced by computer graphics.
