I am a Russian-American photographer and writer working primarily in social documentary and personal narrative.

I love to do both of these things equally, but I also love to experiment with combining them in ways to create even more compelling stories, whether that be through photo books, short films, or other multimedia avenues. I aim to weave stories that offer alternative perspectives while centering on shared experiences. Based in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, I have produced written and visual stories for news outlets, independent magazines, and art, cultural, and educational organizations. When I’m not working, I'm making music, dabbling in film, or spending time outside.
