Author: I was born and raised in a small industrial city in southern Russia. After graduating from the Lyceum, I studied and lived in St. Petersburg, where, by fate, I rotated in creative circles. Poets, writers, directors, artists, photographers - among them I found quite a few friends, who in many ways influenced my perception and my taste.

And most of all this factor is present in street photography. In my travels, I like to roam the streets of unknown cities and look at the life boiling around me.
