French painter & photographer, originally from Russia, graduated from Moscow Fine Art School, has been living and working in Paris since 1986. The camera was always his working tool, whereas photos were some kind of sketchbook. Photography has recently become his second profession. Light, rhythm, atmosphere are essential as in his painting as on his photographic images. The main photographic topics of this artist are women beauties, portraits, nudes, and still life, which are carefully arranged and posed. His imagination demolishes temporal reality – time is irrelevant on his images.
