Dear friends, next Saturday is the opening of our duo exhibition together with the photographer Tim Theo Deceuninck will take place at Concertbuilding of Bruges. During the opening I’m going to present my photo project about the ruins of the Teutonic Order that I have photographed in Kaliningrad over the several years. These ruins are pretty unknown phenomenon here in Europe although it is a large part of European history lost in Russia. Interested? Then I invite you to the vernissage on January 13 at 6 pm. I hope to see you there!

I am proud to announce that the project 'The ruins of the Teutonic Order', which won the public prize in the competition of The Photo Academy Award - 2013, takes part in a group exhibition of the winners and nominees in Fotomuseum in The Hague. My first visit to this museum was in 2008, when I just started studying at KASK. If someone had told me that my work will hang there in 5 years, I would never have believed it. But it happened and I'm incredibly happy! The exhibition in The Hague will run until 27 October and then goes to other cities in the Netherlands and Belgium. Everyone is welcome!

August 2013. Finalist of the ‘Photomania 2013’ (The 6th international competition of professional and amateur photo). From August 9 to September 9, 2013, group exhibition in Art Gallery, Kaliningrad, Russian Federation.

This is an exhibition where my works have participated for the first time outside of the academic education. I am very grateful to the jury and organizers for giving me such a wonderful, unique opportunity to present my work for the first time to public! Thank you! I was pleasantly surprised by level of a competition and the exhibition itself, everything was organized at the best grade, they did everything and even more to make participants and guests, (many of whom had come from abroad), feel as comfortable as possible. I met wonderful people and, for the first time taking a dip into the world of Russian photography, I realized that it lives her absolutely stunning, original life, its rich world outlook, different (!) from European, but 100% - nothing worse. I know that I will be back there again. Pictures will tell the rest of the story.

Сeremonial opening of the exhibition.

The exhibition has attracted a large number of visitors.

So happy to have my works among the works of other participants, who have passed the final selection.

31 June 2013: Graduation and solo Exhibition at School of Arts, Ghent, project ‘Homagium’.
If someone asked me what kind of moment of my life I would like to live again, I would say: my graduation! Such scary, exciting, unpredictable, so important, very crowded event ... the last one. Last jury in Academy was so great (despite the unexpected incident with the humidity conditions in the room, which let my long-suffering pictures to warp), that I will remember this moment forever. All my dear teachers, who patiently molded something valuable from raw blank during 5 years, who always have been the hard observers, they smile suddenly so friendly and even the most toughie one nods in approval. All fellow students… there are just 10 left of almost hundred people who came to study in 2008... I will be missing  them all. I feel both joy and sadness. It’s over. It’s freedom. Is it frightful? Yes it is. The main thing now is not to lose all the precious knowledge, not to waste them, and the most important and difficult thing - always stay in motion.
My first public display of work within the walls of our school during final exam.

Dean of KASK Wim De Temmerman congratulates graduates 2013 with the successful completion of the School of Arts.

My dear teachers, thank you for having been strict and wise, for personal fulfillment and for teaching me to understand art.

I will never forget you.
