Photography and travels help me better see and feel the world. This passion already has led me to many marvelous places on our planet and, most importantly, it let me meet many wonderful and very interesting people, and find new friends. Last year I’m traveling and making photos mostly of Russia, a very grand, diverse, beautiful, and wild country.
