28, higher education (finance and law), 7 years in photography,
2007-2011 photographer with an accreditation at the public events (music and movie festivals, premiere, concerts for web-sites, fotobank, ect. - it's all digital photos)
2009 first experience with film-camera (I used kodak, fuji, ilford film)
2010-2012 photos for emerging artists at the backstage (own project),
2011-2013 photos of ordinary people in the city with my own point of view (street photography) and experimental portraits.
2012-2013 I have studied classical and contemporary art (courses and lectures at museums in Moscow and the State Humanitarian University)
Over time I realized that take photos of stars & media persons (at public events) boring, uninteresting, it is not real photojournalism, not the author's art. Commercial, stock-photography it's not self-realization.
So, today the most interesting to me street photography, because:
- I choose myself the story that I want to show
- I don't need an accreditation
- improvisation, creative and dangerous proximity to the subject
- I portray our time, present, history.
The street photography allows me to combine my artistic expression with journalism.
