My name is Alexandr Altukhov.
I was born in 1969 in Leningrad (now St.Petersburg), Russia. I took interest in photography in school years; it was the time when I got basic skills in BW processes. After finishing school, I was not engaged in the photography until 2013.
In 2013 I got a keen interest in portrait as a genre of photography. The main thing in portrait for me is a person himself/herself. I use different cameras: film cameras (all types) and digital cameras. I am absolutely sure that camera does not replace or help the photographer – it only makes the process of taking pictures either difficult or easy, and it is hard to say what makes better result.
I am the member of The Russian Union of Art Photographers since 2015.
Works are in the Nabokov museum collection.
2016, January. Solo exhibition “Portrait of a MAN”, St. Petersburg, Russia.
I participated in many group exhibitions.
