Artist Statement
I enjoy photographing people that give me a reason to lift my camera. Choosing ideas for my projects is always a gut feeling. I can't explain why some people or some issues fascinate me so much. I guess, they are the things that grab my attention, injustices that I can't close my eyes to, situations that make me engage personally with them. For me photography is the best way to show someone your point of view, who you are and what you think.
Key projects
Even though we created this page for promotional purposes, Attention Hub is a place, where contemporary Russian artists and the global art society meet to communicate.
