I'm a documentary photographer, photojournalist. Currently based in Kyiv, Ukraine.
An important part of my professional activities is visual storytelling and developing personal long-term projects, which are concentrated on ethnic, social, and religious conflicts, life in a post-conflict zone, historical memory, and national identity. The main areas of work are Ukraine, primarily Crimea and Donbas region, South Caucasus, and post-soviet countries. I also worked on a project on social issues, which connected with motherhood, orphan diseases, and palliative care.
