Misha Markina is a digital journalist from Cambridge with an interest in commercial, political and humanitarian journalism.
During his time at LBU, Misha has developed skills in digital design and marketing and he has worked on a number of short films and music videos taking on the role as director. He has also photographed for the charity ‘Care4calais’ and at Black Lives Matter events.
Misha’s portrait series, ’Who’s my neighbour?’, explores the different personalities along the street where he lived during the UK lockdown. The project encouraged him to make connections with his neighbours and listen to their stories. He states: “The number of different characters I encountered was astonishing, from the wonderful quirky 'Jane' who’s been delivering my mail for years, to the
interesting wise old ‘Pops’ who always has an insane story to tell about the good old days.”
