2017 (One more)
Spartak Moscow. Champions
Being a fan of Spartak Moscow football club my whole life, I see my team's myths in my personal behavior and its story fusing with my CV. I started to photograph at the club's games and started to work as a journalist because I needed a media from which to get credentialed for the games.
In 2017, Spartak Moscow got the league title back after 16 years of losses. It happened when a team that seemed to get used of losing turned into warriors and gladiators almost overnight.
Photographing my team's games for years, I dreamed of making an album of its story some time. What better time than now?
Supertuesday and the rest of the week
My second book was published independently in 2017 after another successful crowdfunding campaign. It represents a turnaround year in modern US history, focusing on both 2016 presidential campaign upset win by Donald Trump and daily lives of ordinary citizens. It shows 8 cities in 8 states from Iowa in January'16 to Washington, D.C. in January'17 and from New York to San Francisco or Abilene, Texas to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The book also features my pieces on the state of the presidential race that were made throughout the year.
Apart. Story of Ukrainian Revolution & war
In 2014 I've published a photo book 'Apart' on Ukrainian revolution & war that I witnessed for almost a year and a half. It was published after a successful crowdfunding campaign that established a new record in book category in the history of crowdfunding in Russia, almost 900 copies were ordered in a 5 weeks. It is available HERE
The second edition of the book was released in Kiev in May 2015. It looks highly symbolical to me that the book was printed from the both sides of the now-strongholded-border. The second edition is substantially bigger with the photos of winter & spring of 2015 added, including pictures from the Debaltseve siege, the biggest battle of the war. The book is published as print-on-demand on Russian or Ukrainian language and English to be added soon.
