About me

I was born in South-Kazakhstan region in 1982. At the age of 12 i moved to Russia with my parents.
I have higher mathematical education. I loved math throughout my life, but I loved painting as well. In 2008 the photgraphy has become for me a compromise between maths and art.
I work as freelance photographer and live in Vologda region.
