I live in Russia in St Petersburg. Russia is my homeland. Its where my family, friends, culture, language, history are. St. Petersburg, small villages, birch trees, Chekhov; these are my loves. I like to take pictures of children and teenagers. Their beauty, their youth, their power and energy fascinate me. They are so contradictory, so opposing and at the same time so sincere.

 

 

“I am a very emotional person. I question life, and photography gives me a chance to search for answers, living through the moments of my models’ lives and sharing their stories.”

 

 

“I’ve had the chance to come back in time and rethink these moments again.”
