Alena Zhandarova She holds an MFA in Photography (European Institute of Design, IED Madrid, Spain). Using photography as the main instrument of interaction with space, Alena creates an atmosphere of magic that builds on experimentation and the fresh air of ordinary things in unusual situations. In 2020, she was shortlisted in the Zeiss Photography Awards, and was a finalist at the Lucie Foundation Scholarship, Lens Culture Student Photography Award, PhotoVisa Festival, amongst others.

Marylise Vigneau Raised in a conventional Parisian family, Marylise developed an early taste for peeping through keyholes and climbing walls. Her “Compared Literature” thesis, at la Sorbonne, was about cities as characters in Russian and central European novels. Despite her fascination with literature, over time, her mode of expression has become photography. She is drawn to how human beings are affected by borders, both physical and mental. She is represented by the Anzenberger Agency in Vienna.
