Olesia Saienko
archival paper, printing
297×420


Olesia was born in 1992 in Lutsk. She is a photographer and a visual storyteller. She is also a member of the Ukrainian Women Photographers Organization. Holder of a Master’s degree in Psychology. Started to work as a photojournalist and freelancer in 2017. She lives and works in Ivano-Frankivsk and Lviv.

Olesia is engaged in documentary and conceptual photography and maintains a documentary photo diary. Her practice is centered around fiction, documentary, and post-truth, which is a logical continuation of her journalistic job.  By manipulating the viewer to create confusion, she reflects on the closely related subjects of archive and memory.  An archivist and a trickster in one person, so her statements are not on the nose and not blunt.

Her photos have been published in PHROOM, Reporters.media, F-Stop magazine, Kiosk of democracy, Liberation.
