Zina (Zinchik) Seletskaya was born in Odessa, Ukraine, former USSR. She immigrated to New York City with her family in the early 1990's. Interested in the fine arts since early childhood, Zina continued to pursue her passion for photography by enrolling into countless art classes and participating in workshops with globally accomplished photographers.
Photography became a way for her to communicate with others — to share my visions, my anxieties, my perceptions and my emotions, all at the same time. I created my own visual world. I’ve always enjoyed creating beauty where it never existed, and I've always had a simultaneous desire to invite others into this world. Photography provides this unique outlet for me, enabling me to do both.
