My first close interactions with photography came in my early teenage years, when I exclusively used old Soviet SLR cameras. As a BA student of Political Science at SciencesPo Paris, I've had the opportunity to live, study and above all observe life abroad for the last few years. This also meant moving on from the heavy and bulky SLR cameras like Zenith to Sony a5000. Living in Venice for the past year, but never becoming a local put me at a distance from which I could best observe the life around me. As the islands continued slowly sinking and the population kept shrinking, the Venetians became increasingly fascinating for me. When looking back on my photos street photography with the human's relation to their space always seems to be my central interest. Of all travels I could allow myself, Kyrgyzstan left me most affected, wondering about that special something in its people that contrasted so strongly to the Venetians.
