Tamara completed her Bachelor’s degree in fine arts (main focus photography) with first class honours at the University of Westminster in 2019. Afterwards she was able to contribute as an intern in the production department of the Biel / Bienne festival of Photography for 9 months. In her personal practice she works exclusively with analogue techniques and is interested in the complex ways in which we interact with and process our memories. She creates projects of various dimensions and often uses a mixture of photography and moving images in combination with text.
