BIO

 

Born in Russia and currently based in Kazakhstan.

 

I mainly focus on street, street portrait and reportage. I love using my camera as an instrument for exploring the human nature and playing around with the unique vibe that every city and culture offer. The ability to freeze movement drives me crazy, it's almost like a superpower. Street continues its rhyme and movement, while you look at your camera screen and realise that this particular moment will never be lived the same way again.

 

The other genre that I truly like is conceptual studio photography. I love producing my sessions: creating a concept, thinking of style and look, pulling the right references and stitching it all together. I enjoy communicating with my models a lot to achieve a bit of performance effect and help them to live their image and character.

 

In fact, both spontaneous and well-prepared framing form the Yin and Yang of my photography.
