I am a photographer, I was born in 1961 in Dnepropetrovsk region, Ukraine.

The images are first digitally processed, then textures are applied or processed. Each work is created depending on the idea and feelings.

My main themes are abstraction, texture, street, urban and rural landscapes. I am interested in society, life and nature. I am excited how the light manifests in various life stories of people and nature. The light, like a one's mood, changes my perception of an ordinary place into an unusual one. The photography for me is a search for a warm, dreamy, mysterious and sometimes a little crazy manifestation of light.

My work is also inspired by artists Ivan Marchuk, William Turner, Edward Hopper, Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Josef Sudek, Paul Wolff, Boris Savelev, Rodney Smith, Oleksander Dovzhenko, Andrei Tarkovsky, Mykola Hohol, Hermann Hesse.
