I am a contemporary artist and architecture photographer, approaching the world through architecture and patterns. Sorting the urban landscape of buildings, parks, squares, streets, and transport communications, I am in search of places of meaning, community and belonging. Photography is uniquely positioned to convey this understanding of space to the viewer. 


Born in Kyrgyzstan, I spent my youth in Central Asia. Attracted by the rhythms of a big city, I then moved to Moscow to explore the city and its architecture through photography, and subsequently to Berlin, where I am based since 2018.
