Country: Russia 🇷🇺

I was born and live in Voronezh, Russia. I fell in love with photography as a child helping my parents to develope photo pictures and print photographs. This magic of analog photography and nostalgia got this power over me.

Having fallen in love with photography I focused my attention on portrait photography. I’ve started with self-portraits, with which I took part in the exhibition for the first time having received the audience award. It was a sign that I was moving in the right direction in my hobby!

From the beginning I took pictures for myself, simply because I liked this! - means of self-expression. As my vision. As my view. As my point. And then I’ve realized people attention to my work. After the birth of my daughter, it was quite natural for me to capture her childhood which turned into a peculiar cycle of photographs, a „Theater of one actor“ — my favorite model, my daughter Tina. Her spontaneity, naturalness, sincerity, artistry and the ability to show the whole range of emotions fill me with inspiration and harmony, which I transfer to my photos - full of motherly love.
