In English, 'Siberia' contains letters S, I, B – sib, kinship. That's how I accustomed to act while capturing: as a close one.
Personally, since early 2000-th I'm working on the theme of rural life. Initially - as a head of international photo expedition teams (Great Rivers and Roads of Northern Asia), later - as a sole photographer, film-maker and storyteller.
My works captured throughout the South-Western Siberia were published (LensCulture
, Cultural Anthropology
, NPR, OpenDemocracy, Russian Reporter
etc), showcased in my region (see 3D virtual tour
, **flash player required), in Moscow (Tretyakovskaya State Gallery / Intnl Biennale of Contemporary Art) and outside the Russia - in Australia
, Sweden, Cambodia, Canada, China, UK.
My imagery turned into series of self-published photo books: The Siberians (2013) and print-on-demand ByTheWay
