CV

Travel photographer from Russia.

Creating minimalistic black and white photographs of famous parks and gardens, shorelines and city sights, shooting them out of the tourist season. His works are full of gloomy weather — dark clouds, mist, rain, and the strong wind. Due to bad weather conditions and poor light most of photo­graphs are made with long exposures.

The solitariness in his photographs expresses the detachment from the present, showing the famous places not as the centers of entertainment but as the part of history.
