ARTIST'S STATEMENT //
As an independent documentary photographer, I have a strong passion for capturing real-life stories. Originally from Krasnodar, a city in the south of Russia, I made the move to St. Petersburg at the age of 20 to pursue a higher education in journalism. My interest in photography was sparked through my work as a photojournalist on various social projects. Additionally, I contributed to the cultural magazine Most and received my degree from the Docdocdoc School of Contemporary Photography. My focus is on capturing the social issues within our society, and I particularly enjoy the challenge of portrait photography. Currently, I am based in the beautiful city of St. Petersburg.
