Irina Shkoda is a visual lens-based artist born in Kiev (Ukraine). Graduated from the School of Modern Photography Docdocdoc, Saint-Petersburg, in 2019. 

   The most important part of her work is dedicated to personal long-term projects that contemplate the notion of the sacred and the associated taboos. The impulse for research on this topic arose as a result of her adolescent experience, when she spent a significant part of her time in a convent.
