About myself and this site:
I am a China-based photographer from Russia. I was born in Blagoveshchensk, a Russian-Chinese border city. I first became interested in photography in my hometown and later went on to Beijing, and after that Saint-Petersburg, to study photography. Currently I live in Shenzhen, where I work on personal and freelance projects.
I am an eclectic documentarian. Containing myself within one genre of photography is a difficult task for me. I think that an idea dictates the approach. However, the photographs I enjoy the most are of a genuine, caught moment, rather than an imitated one.
All my photography on the website is presented in two categories: ‘Projects’ and ‘Entries & passages’. ‘Projects’ section contains my main, long-term work, while ‘Entries and passages’ includes more spontaneous, day-to-day series.
