My name is Dmitry Smagin. I am 46 years old. I live in the small village, which is located in the Smolenskoye Poozerie nature reserve. This is one of the most beautiful places in Central Russia. I am a philologist by education. In addition to photography, I write poetry. He was fond of photography as a child, but abandoned it with age. I returned to this activity a little over a year ago. For me photography is a way of communicating with the outside world.
