Born in 1982 in Moscow, Russia, I was working as a photographer in Russia and Israel for more than 10 years, mostly making portraits.
Eventually I shifted to cinema while studying at Musrara — The Naggar School of Photography and New Media in Jerusalem, Israel.
In 2011 I scripted, directed and filmed feature documentary movie When New Year Comes on Shabbat.
Since then I moved to Berlin and working as cinematographer on documentary, features and video movies. I was a cameraman on a VICE movie Young and Gay in Putin’s Russia, with Petr Zhukov I worked on a feature movie Çiçek in Turkey, with Olga Kravets I filmed documentary It’s Getting Dark (IDFA 2016 competition), and currently I work on my first feature movie.
