"Usually my work has nothing to do with news and political events. I dedicate my work exclusively to beauty. I am trying to save my viewers from the problems and news noise that surrounds modern human tightly, to let them enjoy pure art. It is for this reason that I try never to make a description of my works, often I don’t even give them a title, so as not to distract the viewer’s brain with information, to give free rein to his emotions. But 2022 was a very difficult year for me, unsettled me, penetrated my creativity. The events of last year resonated so strongly in my soul that I dedicated 2 series of photographs to them".
