Eugenia Maximova is a multiple award winning photographer, photojournalist and visual artist, based in Vienna. She holds a master's degree in journalism- and communication studies from The University of Vienna. Her artistic practice is informed by a critical reflection on and an engagement with socio-political contexts. Inspired by her childhood in Bulgaria, she explores issues of identity and the everyday life in post-communist cultures, but also of consumption and transience. Eugenia uses an analogue medium-format camera and kindles a passion for colours and clear image compositions while making sure to celebrate life.
Eugenia Maximova has published several books and was featured among the 100 best photobooks in "How We See: Photobooks By Women” (2018) published by 10x10 Photobooks.
Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions in a large number of countries. She has also given talks and has taught several workshops on photography.
As freelance photographer, her list of clients includes: GEO, National Geographic, Economist, Die Zeit, Moscow News, The Guardian, The Washington Post, Corriere della Sera and many more.
