About Photographer

I am a fine art photographer. I was born in 1981 in Belarus in a small town of the Mogilev district. I had an ordinary childhood in an ordinary family. I spent my childhood as well as a part of my youth in former USSR, but I'm sure it was happy times. I even was a member if All-Union Pioneer Organization about one year and was proud of this fact: I was wearing the red necktie with honor and believed in soviet ideals at that time. Yes, now everything changed as well as myself, but this big part of my life helps me in my creative life now. I graduated as an Economist in 2003 and worked as an accountant for about 7 years. At the age of 29 I dedicated myself to photography what was my passion all of my life. Photography is a tool I talk to the audience with. Within my professional photographic activity I have publications in different art magazines around the world, my photos were honorable mentioned in different photo competitions/awards and I was the winer of “Best photographer” international award in Moscow (Russia). Some of my photos were exhibited in Saatchi Gallery in London, last year one of my work was a part of the VOGUE Italia Fashion night in Milan and Rome, I also have quite big portfolio on PhotoVogue.it with more then 270 pics in “Best of” section as well. I had three personal exhibitions: two in Mogilev, Belarus and one in Ventspils, Latvia. In spite of the fact that art photography is not so demanded in my country and absolutely not in my own town where I live and create, I remain the passionately fond of art photography. I really believe that art will save the world, and I am really very happy to be a part of this. You know art is an integral part of our world, it has many different important functions but the most important thing is that the art is the only language understandable everywhere. Just let it enter your heart. I wish more strength to make all of my creative plans come true and of course patience to complete them all in spite of all the challenges. And of course, I think my best project waits for me in the future.
