Hi! Welcome to my galleries!
Photography is my hobby and passion. It all started long time ago.
“Once upon a time, when all Soviet people where considered Russians by the westerners and photo equipment like Nikon, Canon, Pentax and others
where unreachable dream for us living behind the Iron Curtain, there was a boy, who started to discover miracles of photography as he went into
improvised photo laboratory (to which bath room was turned into for a time) of his God father and watched how pictures were born. It was like a miracle
to the boy. When the boy turned seven or so he got his own camera for his birth day – his first ONE – Smena 8M.
… He turned more serious about photography when he managed to buy Zenit 11, when he was 15…
Then unbelievable thing happened – USSR broke apart together with the wall to unreachable photo equipment.
Suddenly there was a new countries on the World’s map and the boy reached out from the prison where he was locked for 31 year of his life,
to see all beauty there is in the World where we all live in…”
Let the photos tell you more about that boy, bringing motion into your mind as you open one, like sometimes in movies you can see,
when there is still frame - some old photo and next moment it all starts to move going into motion picture.
Enjoy! and thank you for stopping and comments!
