Shaper Series x Anastasia Petukhova

Born in Russia in 1989, Anastasia Petukhova is a fine art, commercial, and street photographer based in Los Angeles, California. The Shaper Series by Anastasia Petukhova documents the craft of surfboard-making, providing an in depth look at an inspiring and rarely-seen process that is steeped in love and care, part science and art, precision and feeling, and of course, passion and hard work.

Developing an interest in photography in her years as an athlete, she found inspiration in her travels while competing in tennis tournaments in Russia and abroad. In the fall of 2013, she decided to make photography her main focus. Learn more about Anastasia and her work here.
