Evgeniy Petrachkov is a photographer based between Moscow and Izhevsk. He was born in Izhevsk, Russia in 1991.
A self-taught photographer, he started documenting his surroundings when he was 17 years old. In 2015 he finished his first long-term project Malinikha about the working-class area in Izhevsk where he grew up.
Since 2016 Evgeniy self-publishes zines with his work. His zines Malinikha, Unemployment Certificate, Sunday Blues, Deprivation and others study the relationship between places and people inhabiting them.
In 2017 Evgeniy started working on his second long-term project documenting the Volga Federal District, a leader in agriculture and oil and gas refining in Russia, that is suffering the biggest migration loss in the country due to economic crisis.
In 2018 Evgeniy started a project about Moscow where he currently lives.
Using an immersive approach in his projects, Evgeniy studies the nature of social inequality, issues of identity, including issues arising under the globalization, and the relationship between the past and the present.
