Born in 1959 in Novokuznetsk / Russia. Graduated in Painting, Drawing and Textile Design at the Stroganoff Academy in Moscow in 1987. In 1990 my curiosity about life in the West and my interest in European art and culture brought me from Siberia to The Netherlands. To explore life in Holland and learn more about Western mentality I began to portray people in my vicinity. I try through my work to analyze Human Nature, to study Mankind from the outside and the inside. Nowadays I am working on my long-term photography project Human Being.
My INSOMNIA photos are featured in the ‘New Dutch Photography Talent’ 2016 edition by GUP Magazine/Amsterdam.
