2012 – 2019
8 years ago I moved to Zurich, Switzerland from Rostov-on-Don, Russia. «Zürich» consists of photos I've done in my hometown over these years. I'm settled in Zurich now, my home is here, I know where tram lines go, how doctors appointments are made, how bills are paid. In Rostov I have no clue of such things: either I can't remember or my knowledge no longer applies. Though, every Monday I check the game results for Rostov football club, Russian Premier League. For some reason I also need to know about a car crash on Bolshaya Sadovaya str. 44 from last Sunday. Rostov is in my head: a mix of a vague memories and random snapshots of present. Every time I go back I feel like I'm looking at a world where I disappeared, but the world simply goes on. I see a parallel life - a life I could have had, and I feel the urge to photograph it.
"Zürich" is among the finalists of the 23. vfg Nachwuchsförderpreis.
“Zürich” is a Part of the ShowOFF section at Krakow Photomonth in Poland from 25.05. till 23.06.
