Artist Statement
Questioning the very basic notion of photography as probably the most indisputable historical source I'm building a narrative that takes back in time. From a technical perspective, I use the combination of written accounts, images, documents, collages and contemporary photographs printed with old printing techniques. On a conceptual level, I play with a photographic representation and manipulation of information within the images.

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.
