Every photographer has something that he shoots for the soul. Of course, all my photos are for the soul — but there is something that is very interesting to me, but not very interesting to a wide circle. My two photo passions are crafts and villages. When I get to any country, I try not to linger in large cities, but to go to the hinterland. I have always been interested in people and their traditions, and traditions in our time have been preserved only in the village. The further away the place is from the main tourist flow and the more difficult it is to get there, the more interesting it is for me.
