I chose cinema as the main emphasis at the University, wrote scientific works on Alexei Balabanov’s films, and my Master’s thesis was focused on Andrei Tarkovsky’s “Solaris”, where I analyzed the visuals and director’s compositional decisions. This period determined my views on photography and gave me a better idea of how stories can be visually presented. After receiving an MA degree, I decided to go deeper into photography.
