She was chosen as a Foam Talent in 2011, and as a finalist at the Hyères Festival 2011 – she returned to exhibit commissioned fashion work in 2012. In 2013, Isetan (Tokyo) presented Ina as one of the up and coming ‘to-watch’ artists working in fashion – highlighting her distinctive and unique practice.

Most recently, Ina was invited by the legendary magazine Camera to talk about her work and inspiration. In an extensive conversation with Jonas Cuénin, Cuénin located Ina’s work “somewhere between fashion and fine art, at the junction of photography, drawing, graphic design and sculpture”. Ina’s works have been published extensively in such publications as Time Magazine’s Light Box, Dear, Dave Magazine, British Journal of Photography, Photo District News, and The New York Times Magazine.

With regard to her latest series In a World without Words she explains: “I make images that are minimal and two-dimensional by layering people, places and things to precisely execute ideas, but with the intention of discarding information. The photographs are often figurative and unidentified, casting a suspicion upon the photograph’s agenda”.
