Anastasia Samoylova moves between observational photography, studio practice and installation. Although her work takes many forms, a central concern is the place images occupy in our understanding and misunderstanding of the world. The epic project FloodZone, photographed in the Southern United States, reworks our expectations of coastal paradise into a psychological portrait of communities faced with rising sea levels.

Anastasia Samoylova completed her MA in Environmental Design from Russian State University of Humanities (2007), and MFA from Bradley University, Peoria, IL (2011). She has been included in many exhibitions, nationally and internationally, including at the Aperture Foundation, New York, NY (2016); the Griffin Museum of Photography, Winchester, MA (2015); and the Contemporary Arts Center, Peoria, IL (2013), among many others.

Lectures in Photography are co-presented by MoCP and the Photography Department at Columbia College Chicago.
