Ana Samoylova Russia

Growing up in Moscow, Russia, Ana Samoylova describes her surroundings as unremarkable. So, when the photographer moved to Miami, Florida in 2016 expecting paradise, she was caught off guard by extreme weather and rising sea levels—which began to inform her work. We featured Ana’s ongoing series Floodzone, which captures the potential for devastation hanging over Miami and other coastal communities. In it, she photographs the subtle and sometimes understated effects of climate change, avoiding the hard-hitting or cliched imagery we’ve become accustomed to. Floodzone was published by Steidl in 2019 and presented in various solo exhibitions in 2021, including at the Multimedia Art Museum Moscow and The Chrysler Museum of Art.
