I was born in Belarus but spent most of my life in California. Photography has been a serious part of my life for over 20 years. My favourite genre is street and travel photography, and on my trips and assignments around the world, I seek out to reflect and portray each city, each country through the eyes of a street wanderer, a quiet observer. I believe the best way to capture the essence of any place is through the faces of its inhabitants. Therefore, I try to include people of various walks of life in my photography. Landscape is another one of my favourite genres, and in that, I let Mother Nature take the lead. I simply take notes. Welcome to my website!
