Born in Eastern Ukraine in 1954, live and work in Kiev (Ukraine). Though I graduated as a Mechanical Engineer in 1976, I have always had a passion for photography and arts and after a short stint in engineering became a full-time photographic artist. First recognition came in 1979 with receiving a Diploma award from the All-Ukranian exhibition `Photodebute`. Since then my works have been exhibited at numerous group exhibitions the former USSR, Ukraine, Chech Repuiblic, Poland, former Yugoslavia and in Mexico. I had several solo exhibitions, in 1999 and 2001 in Lugansk (Ukraine), several times in Innichen (Italy) and in London (UK) in 2005, in 2008 in Zaragoza (Spain), 2013 in Lviv (Ukraine). Since 2001 I am an active contributor to the Family of Man 2 project. Since 2003 I am a featured photographic artist in the "ZoneZero" on-line project.
