Tatiana Stolpovskaya (she/her) is a New York based cinematographer and experimental filmmaker. She explores different types of media, combining  analog filmmaking with digital media production. 


Born and raised in Moscow, Tatiana studied Cultural Studies at Russian State University for the Humanities and Cinematography at the Moscow Independent School of Film and TV. Tatiana received an Award for Outstanding Achievement in Integrated Media Arts and MFA degree from Hunter College (CUNY). 


Films she shot as DP have been screened worldwide including 53 Pesaro Film Festival in Italy; KINOTAVR and ArtDocFest in Russia; Ishinomaki International Film Festival, Japan; and Women Media Arts and Film Festival, Australia (winner Best Media Arts in 2017 for NYC FLOW). 

Tatiana is a strong believer in a synthesis between documentary and narrative filmmaking. This hybrid approach helps her develop a unique cinematic look for any project. Her personal work explores themes related to immigration and LGBTQ+ rights.
