Bio

I was born in 1984 in a small and very old town Romny in Ukraine. From 2002 till 2008 studied in "Odessa National Maritime Academy". Master degree in Navigation. Since that time i live in Odessa city, Ukraine and work in the renewable energy industry worldwide.
It should be noted that photography is not my main occupation. At some point, I made a conscious decision to leave the art of photography only as my passion, so as not to burden it with routine and not to lose the feeling of freedom of creation. Before I've became interested in photography, my attention was drawn to the works of 20th century surrealists, especially Salvador Dali, which definitely had some influence on my perception of the visual arts in general and photography in particular. From the beginning I worked only with a candid photography - as it has power of the basic attributes of photography - representation of a reality. At the same time, my task - convert it to another reality by excluding a context from it by the photo frame.
