Hi, I’m a photographer. I was born in Belarus, in Polesye to be exact. I lived in Minsk, Moscow, Warsaw, and I’m currently in Berlin.

I started photography when I was ten and my dad gave me a Kodak camera for my birthday. It all began with just taking pictures of friends, street cats and dogs, random passers-by. Now it's still the same: I walk, I observe, I see funny, melancholy, beautiful, a bit ugly stuff. I’ve never switched to a digital camera from analog, and never will. 

I do personal shootings and portraits, always appreciate collaborating with brands and businesses that are close in spirit and aesthetics. Photographing people is what I love the most, and people like the way I see them. The thing is, when I photograph someone I'm falling in love with them, really do.
