I began working actively in the sphere of photography in 1980. I have never limited myself by certain scope, conventionalities, traditions, which are very numerous in photography. I always experiment a lot: with myself – while taking photographs, with the spectators – while showing them. These experiments are not the attempt to show my originality, but a special internal need in development and movement forward.
The main purpose of my work in the sphere of photography is finding out a sensual component but not the formal one. To my mind, in the perception of a photograph the leading part is played by the image energy, but not a form or decoration. That is why I photograph people a lot; such photos include a lot of emotions, emotional states, sensuality.
Alongside with studio work, I take a lot of pictures during trips and travels. My creative work turns out to be especially fruitful during the trips with my loved one. In this case my journey photographic stories are more sincere, and the photographs are more lively and emotional.
I am a member of the Union of Photography Artists of Russia and the Creative Union of Artists. I have my own photo studio and Creative Photography School.
