My name is Ksenija Kolesnika. I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer.

I was born on the edge of USSR, and spent my conscious childhood in the dashing 90’s in Riga, Latvia. As a child I enjoyed observing the surrounding reality, living in the place where “modern Europe” meets the elements of the Soviet times, which conflict and overlap at the same time. The dichotomy of my surroundings helped me develop my personality and vision that I portray in my photography.

I try to convey how imperfect life sparkles through my images while maintaining focus within the moment. My passions consist of people, patterns, light, colors, shadows, surreal environment but most of all a natural pulse of life. I shoot a lot of portraits as well as shots that capture the beauty of the world and its subjects.

Based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and available to travel for projects around the globe.
