Born in 1959 in Novokuznetsk / Russia. Graduated at the Stroganoff Academy in Moscow in 1987. In 1990 moved to The Netherlands.
My recent autonomous work consists of traditional analogue black and white photography, video experiments and digital photography. I get my inspiration from classical painting, world literature and cinematography, but also from my personal life. My photographic work can be regarded as visual poetry, as a visual reconstruction of the subconscious. I observe and register my fellow human beings in different capacities using digital media. Using my imagery, video stills and staged photography, I create a different reality, my own drama in which man is presented as a mystery, sometimes almost anonymously, eyes closed in his or her own reality, veiled behind the haze.
My INSOMNIA photos are featured in the ‘New Dutch Photography Talent’ 2016 edition by GUP Magazine/Amsterdam.
