I am a freelance journalist and photographer. Born in 1991, I was raised in Moscow and currently live in Berlin.
In 2012, I completed my bachelor's degree in journalism and, in 2014, my master's degree in human rights at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. I did a semester abroad at Humboldt University in Berlin.
I have been working as a journalist since 2012 with a focus on social issues. Since 2013, I have been taking photos to accompany my articles. The online magazines that I have contributed to include GEO, HuffPost, Snob, Afisha daily, Tut i Tam. In 2015, I attended Neue Schule für Fotografie (New School of Photography Berlin) — what began as a professional necessity grew into one of my greatest passions. From that time, this passion has grown even stronger and I have begun my own personal documentary projects.
