Photography for me is always finding something new: new individual, new profession, new places I would never visit without it. The photography is the window that makes the world different. Each human being is the huge and very interesting world. Before taking pictures, I am trying to have some words with the person to be able to understand him better, listen to him, because only when you become more acquainted with each other there is a possibility to see not only his external but «inner» image, the true man. I wander the city around a lot, trying to see miracles in routine things. Sometimes the street you crossed million times is being revealed under different light, and cracked wall paint forms magic objects and figures.
