Dates:  1968 18 September -
Born:  Russia

Contemporary Russian-born photographer with a rich variety of styles from magazine work through to nudes, portraits and the series Fairy Tales
Artist statement: 
I don´t believe in artist statements. Instead I propose some quotations:
"For me, the artist is as pure as a saint. I put them on the same level. Their purpose is to sublimate our awareness. I understand creation as a purifying act, a kind of satisfaction. Art aims at self-fulfillment. It is the link between religion, spirituality and esthetics.”

Joel-Peter Witkin

“It could be a step forward to realize that the rational picture of the world is also an imagination; it has the same reality as a myth. It is a product of the mind; it is not more substantial then the mind.”

Francesco Clemente

"I don't believe in these artificial divisions... I just do what I do you know. I don't believe that just because I've written a book I have to write another ten books, or just because I've written a screenplay I have to carry on doing that. Sometimes something is a book; and sometimes a screenplay or... something else. I think that sometimes we are just sort of put into these categories, and we don't think about it, we just keep running on those tracks."

Arundathi Roy
