Alisa Resnik is a Russian-born photographer based in Berlin. She moved to photography in 2008 after studying philosophy and Art History in Berlin and Bologna.
Her photography work is intimate and in a dark color palette; often in nightly settings, she depicts with empathy the fragility of all beings.
In 2013, she won the European Publishers Award, and her project "One Another" was published simultaneously in five countries and five languages. We are offering the English version (Dewi Lewis Publishing) and the French version "L'un l'autre" (Actes Sud).
The work of Alisa Resnik was included in 2018 in the collective exhibition curated by Marie Sordat "Eyes Wild Open", at Le Jardin Botanique in Brussels.
In 2021, Alisa Resnik publishes with Editions lamaindonne her second photobook "On the Night that We Leave" which appears to be wanderings but is in fact the path and the story of the photographer, of the woman, always in an intimate and powerful bond with the night.

And people’s faces…… hurried glances, small awkward gestures, hands searching for support, the signs of grief or desparation in the...
