I was born in the Soviet Union when it was still the USSR. I’ve never formally learned how to take photos. When I was 14 or 15 my father bought a camera for me, and I started to take photos, though not seriously at the start. Then in two years I decided that I love it! And when I was 17 I could see my future would connected to shooting. I started work when I was 18, at 19 me and my sister decided to work together, just because it was easier. But influences and inspirations became more different day by day, and now we work independently. I spent a year in Florida, and it had a really great influence, all these long sunny lazy days, my photos were kind of “floridian” for about two years, and they still look so now sometimes.
I cover sport, breaking news and human interest stories
