I was born in Moscow in 1981 and have been living there ever since. In 2002, when I was a student, I discovered that the camera was a perfect tool to express myself. It took some time to find the right way, so I would say that photography made a comeback into my life in 2007 and turned out to be my long-term passion. What I do is closer to the New Topography, though I don’t really care about genres and labels because my interest is foremost in the image itself. There is something that makes me relate to street-photographers — it is definitely my style of shooting (or just life style) — with my small camera in the pocket.
I worked for various photo magazines, co-founded Oh!Sheet, curated Innervisions exhibition project and judged Moscow Street Photography Festival. I am a member of ULICA collective.
