Biography

Rosaline Shahnavaz (b.1991, London) is a photographer living and working in London, UK.
She was educated at Central Saint Martins and the London College of Communication. Her award winning work has been exhibited and published extensively both in the UK and internationally, and in 2018 she was nominated by the Guardian for Lens Culture’s Top 35 Photographers to watch.

She is recognised for her signature style of informal, intimate and playful photography. Moving seamlessly between personal, editorial and commercial projects, her work champions women in their element - empowered, expressive and in full possession of the frame. Her ability to create the perfect shoot atmosphere and spark meaningful connections means Rosaline always captures those perfect in-between moments, easing her subjects into revealing their unique selves for the camera:
