As a Masters student of Image and Communication (MA in Photography:The Image and Electronic Arts) from Goldsmiths University, Tanya works with New Mixed Media, photographing everyday objects and turning them into alternate realities through the techniques of collage and digital painting. “My work explores leaving everyday reality to create a world of my own which in turn explores personal and universal truths. I contemplate contemporary issues faced by modern society and reinterpret these through history, myth, literature and music."
