I was born in the Ukraine and received my first camera at 10 years of age. Since that day, I have been photographing. In 1989 I arrived in New York and immediately fell in love with the intensity, architecture and cultural variety of the city, especially with parks and recreation areas. I also take a lot of photographs when I travel.

I am drawn to photographing the beauty of nature and of man-made structures, often with unusual light conditions, or unusual curves and style. I like to photograph everyday things and situations from an unusual angle or perspective.

I also manipulate some of my images with the computer to bring out other visual elements.
