New-York based Russian photographer Kristina Shakht creates art exploring the female gaze, femininity and the body. Inspired by her own healing journey, Kristina aims to give a comforting feeling of safe space through her work.
My main goal is to normalise women’s bodies, not as sexual objects but as pieces of art.
As a sexual assault survivor, this work is my healing process in accepting my own body and reframing the stigmas that society has around female sexuality.
