Alena Kuzub came to the U.S. from Minsk, Belarus to study at the New England School of Photography (Boston, MA) and become a professional photographer. She graduated in 2013 with concentrations in Documentary, Advertising, and Fine Art Black and White photography. In 2013 and 2014 her work was shown across New England in several exhibitions, including the Flash Forward Festival exhibition “Undergraduate Photography Now: A Celebration of New England’s Best Student Photographers” (Boston, MA), the Griffin Museum of Photography’s 19th Annual Juried Exhibition juried by Kathy Ryan (Winchester, MA), and Panopticon Gallery (Boston, MA). She was also awarded second prize in the Portrait category and second honorable mention in the Feature category of the Boston Press Photographers Association College Contest 2013.
As a photographer, Alena chose to concentrate on Documentary, Fine Art Black&White, and Advertising since each of this fields covers an important part of photography for her: real life, visually beautiful creative art, and fun and experimentation.
In her documentary work Alena is interested in human condition and hopes that her photography will help both herself and other people to understand the modern world better and make a difference where needed. She enjoys going places and meeting people from foreign countries which helps to break the stereotypical ideas about different nations and to experience cultures first hand. She prefers to work “from the gut feeling”, not previsualizing much but rather responding to what’s happening in front of her with a click of a shutter.
