I was born in 1985 in Leningrad.
From my early childhood, which I’ve spent in student dorms, my world consisted of many images. I was strolling down long corridors, entered neighbours’ rooms without knocking and has always been on close terms with adults. I also traveled a lot by train or plane: Tashkent, Severodvinsk, Arkhangelsk, Uzhgorod, Riga, Mogilev, and back to Tashkent. It all probably began at that time.
During my primary school years, I was spending a few hours in the Hermitage each morning where my father worked at that time. I attended a children’s art studio and was passionately browsing through impressionist albums and reading books.
It was rather a twisty path that led me to photography when it was suddenly clear that it was the best tool to explore the world. By that time, I have already studied psychology and design for some time. From 2006, I have traveled and photographed a lot, sometimes falling under different influences, and studied at the Galperin School of Photojournalism at the same time.
Today I only photograph what interests me: other worlds which also consist of many images. Professional photography only interests me in terms of opportunities for personal growth that it opens.
