Will you tell us a little about yourself and how you got into photography?

When I was 15 I was very impressed by the city of St. Petersburg in Russia. I remember my feeling that there is so much beauty everywhere and I want to show it but in my own way. After my return I bought small digital camera and started explore everybody and everything around me. And I’m still doing this.

Where does your passion for photography come from?

Photography for me is the way I communicate with the world. I really love people so they are the subject of my focus and my passion in photography.

What have you learned about people from taking their portrait?

People know not much about who they are. And I like to show them who they think they are, how I see them and who and even what they can be. So the process and the result of the shooting in some ways help people to understand and accept themselves.

Best wishes,
