Masha Sardari was born in April of 1994 in Rybnitsa,Moldova. She lived in Moldova until she moved to the United States at the age of twelve. She now resides in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida while attending high school. Masha discovered the photographic medium in January 2010 after receiving a point and shoot camera as a gift. She began her artistic journey with a 365-day project that challenged her to capture a photograph every day for a year. As the year progressed, she developed her own style involving a square format, deep colors, and mysterious events. At first her work involved mostly self-portraiture, but eventually she incorporated other models. This shift allowed for additional freedom as Masha was able to manipulate composition and concept more effectively. Masha draws inspiration from a number of sources from childhood memories to Renaissance paintings. Her photography includes painterly effects and psychologically oriented lighting to create high drama and tension. Masha’s photography provides a window into the inner world of her mind.
