Street photography is characterized by extreme sensitivity to aesthetic and psychological and sociological insight. Photographer fishes out of the course of events surrounding the seemingly insignificant moments and reveals their special importance. Special for me in the photo is a deeply humane reflection on the nature of such individual and social masses. Captures everyday life, he says, "we are surrounded by the most of the time, while barely notice it." This proves that the so-called ordinary, insignificant moments in life often have their hidden meaning, are interesting, funny, bizarre and memorable. ''Strolling through the streets of the twenty-first-century city, I try to capture on film something timeless, something eternal truth about man, the truth of which has not changed for hundreds, thousands of years.''
