Elena Chernyshova is a Russian/French documentary photographer.

A self-taught photographer, she developed a passion for this visual language during her studies in the architectural academy and a 3-year bicycle trip in Eurasia.

Photography for her is a way to investigate the daily life of different groups and communities in the context of environmental, political, and economic changes. Her work aims to visualize the impact of certain conditions of human activity, ways of adaptation, and diversity of lifestyles.

She regularly collaborates with National Geographic Russia, GEO, Stern, Figaro, Le Monde and others.
