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. After receiving an MA degree, I decided to go deeper into photography.

I'm very passionate about photographing, since this is how I tell stories, how I capture the light. In photography it's all about light.
