I was in many small cities and villages near Kiev and not far from Kiev. Sometimes I used not only bicycle, but local buses and local trains. And of course, during this trip I shot a lot.
I think, I make pictures for people who usually are not common with photography, but who can see. I was convinced many times that their opinion is much more deep and true than from critics. It’s very important for me to create honest, persuasive and understandable pictures.
I look for typical, not for unique; for familiar, not for mysterious. I have my own view of modern photography, and I’m trying to create such pictures.
