  • I was born and grown up in Saint Petersburg, the city which I love and hate at the same time, the city, which size and beauty, cold wind and dark water leave you without words and make you feel even smaller then you are… Now I live in Bologna, small, nice place, that can be so open and so traditional, so welcoming and so unfriendly, so different anyway.. Alfred Stieglitz once said that photography for him is the way to build relationships with the ambient where he lives in order not to feel so much stranger in his own city.. I could say the same. Taking photos helps me to accept what I see and to make the space around a little bit mine.
