About Photographer

About me: Moscow, Russia About my work: I do believe that everyone is born with an instinct for art. Revealing it through photography has become my lifework. There is so much to know, to feel and to understand and I devote every possible moment to reflecting on what has been observed. Transforming a real object into an interpretable artistic image by means of composition is what photography means for me. Finding a reality scene that an eye usually does not notice or passes by, withdrawing it out of the context, making it independent and giving it a new life is what absorbs me in my work. This new live form provoking thoughts and feelings is what I would like to invite a spectator reveal in my pictures.
