Helena Melikov founded the sustainable art and photo book publishing house SHIFT BOOKS, which focuses on gender, political and cultural issues. After studying media production, she worked as a freelance book and magazine designer and photographer for various publishers and institutions. In addition, she completed a degree in photo editing at the Ostkreuz Schule in Berlin. She initiated the project and collection “Lost & Found”, which is a combination of everyday photography and literary texts. The project invites you to deal with the image as an object and carrier of meaning and to question the way in which we perceive and interpret images. She is particularly interested in artistic conceptual photography.
