Too cool for school. Vice Russia

This shoot was inspired by my Moscow school and the nostalgic memories of my tenth grade. That year was full of adventure, experiencing youth and being hooligans. I tried to capture everything that we used to do: missing classes, hiding for a smoke and hanging out behind garages.  I would say this shoot is a bit documentary because I recorded the real places and spirit of that time.

Rankin exhibition and snooker!

My friend Alena and I were chosen for the Rankin exhibition. The Dazed TV Party was amazing and fun. We were really satisfied with the prints and frames. We met the very talented Cameron Alexander who also was chosen with his beautiful shot of Callum Wilson. By the time all the drinks were finished we aimed towards Dalston and the pool hall with lots of fries in our hands!!

The whole thing was filmed by Dazed TV and it will be out tomorrow at 7.00 pm 


Some Sunday shots of my beauty Joe, before he prepares to be an extra in the new film Last Passenger.  Spending his sunny week on the dark train.

This story was inspired by the Indian playful God Krishna.  The iconography of Krishna usually depicts him with blue skin, adorned with a yellow silk rope and a peacock feather crown. All of these beautiful historical images and striking colours triggered my imagination and I decided to create a series of photographs based on these inspirations. The colourful flowers and repetition of objects were also inspired by the work of French artists & lovers, Pierre et Gilles.
