I am a filmmaker, DoP and photographer based in Berlin.

Born in 1982 in Moscow, Russia, I was working as a photographer in Russia and Israel for more than 10 years, being staff photographer with the Seance film magazine and publishing house since 2004, and working as a freelancer for various magazines.

With the Seance publishing house I made two books with the portraits of Russian cinema makers.

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 Martı in Turkey, and now I work with Stanislav Dorochenkov on a documentary about artist Iliazd.
