Dina Litovsky Joins Anastasia Photo

Anastasia Photo is pleased to announce documentary photographer Dina Litovsky is now represented by the gallery.


Red Paint from the series “Untag This Photo”

“I am not interested in photographing people for the purpose of glimpsing the ‘true‘ self. I would hesitate to classify any of my photos as portraits. What I am curious about is the situational self – people’s behavior in relation to other people, their setting and their cultural environment. My photographs are about a ‘social animal’ rather then a Renaissance ideal of individualism.” – Dina Litovsky
