I was born in 1977 in the engineers’ family. From the early childhood I perceived myself as an artist. I was fond of painting. Besides I used to take my father’s photo camera and tried to photograph. My father taught me to take and to print pictures. At the age of 9 I printed photographs without any assistance. However later I got photography out of my head for long years and spent all spare time on the other hobbies.
I entered technical university. Soon I realized that I didn’t want to become an engineer. I decided to get the second education and attended evening classes on graphics and design. I was interested in visual art. I became mad about body art. Then I came to conclusion that photographing people is more interesting for me than painting them. So I turned to photography again at the age of 22. Two or three years later I became a professional photographer.
I concentrated on nude photographing. I searched for the more attractive art trend which could be close and absorbing for me. First I was attracted by retro stylization. At hat period I was mainly influenced by Jan Saudek’s art. Later I turned to doom, goth, dark sensuality.
In 2005 I came to fetish and BDSM themes. These themes still predominate in my art. However I am always absorbed by searching for the other themes and trends. As for BDSM photography I am mainly interested in people relations and also in emotions, intimation that take place in the cadre.
My artist statement is maximum openness. I mean not only spiritual but also physical openness. I aspire to reveal and demonstrate the things usually perceived as taboo, the actions people made “without light” because they are supposed to be perverted.
I suppose that the lack of openness and sincerity in the modern society should be considered as perversion, it leads to the loss of gladness in people relations.
