Bio

Born in New York City and based in Sydney, Sasha Mishkin is an artist working across photography, video and installation. She holds a Bachelor of Art from Hampshire College and a Masters of Art from UNSW Art & Design. She is fascinated by the performative aspects of identity and how they manifest within the photographic portrait. With a foundation in documentary photography, her projects explore portraiture as a social practice underpinned by interaction and collaboration between photographer and subject. She was a semi-finalist in the 2019 Head On Portrait Prize and a recipient of the Arc @ UNSW Art & Design Grant for her joint immersive installation in the 2017 Sydney Fringe Festival. She has exhibited in the USA, Australia, and Cuba.
