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. I always badly interested in drawing. So that‘s why after graduating from the University of Veterinary Medicine I got in parallel the education of specialisation as a Graphic Designer.

For a long time I did not work in my field being fascinated by the expression of my creative vision in photography, learning independently and drawing inspiration from other types of art. 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 realised 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.
