I grew up in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. We call this city “The cultural capital” of Russia. If you are born and raised there, there is no way you can escape being involved in any kind of art: music, theatre, ballet, painting, etc. I have always appreciated all of them but only as an observer, never as an artist. Having a business degree in marketing, and working in this field I had never pictured myself a photographer.
In 2015 I moved to New York. A completely different mentality, society, lifestyle, and a life in the unique, full of artists, neighborhood, have changed me.
I started photography, and it might be the strongest feeling to express myself I have ever had.
