Anastasia Samoylova is a Miami-based artist and photographer. By utilizing tools and strategies related to digital media and commercial photography, her work examines notions of environmentalism, consumerism and the picturesque. Samoylova’s work participates in the landscape photography tradition while scrutinizing the consumable products it generates.

Samoylova has exhibited internationally, including Aperture Foundation in New York, Griffin Museum of Photography in Boston, and in photography festivals in Belgium, Brazil, and South Korea. Her work is in the collections at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Stanford University, Yale University, and Art Slant Collection in Paris. Her monograph Landscape Sublime was published by In the In-Between Editions in 2016. In 2018 she was the recipient of the South Arts State Fellowship for her ongoing project Flood Zone.

Samoylova is an artist-in-residence at the ArtCenter South Florida. Her studio is located at 924 Lincoln Road, Suite 109, Miami Beach, FL 33139

Samoylova is represented by Julie Saul Gallery: 535 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10011; mail@saulgallery.com; 212 - 627 - 2410
