My background in architectural history helps when I photograph architecture. It forces me to look for the most important features of the building and for the continuity (or the lack of it) between the exterior and interior.
You can only get the full experience of architecture by moving. Video gives you a chance to see the context, study details, and add three-dimensionality.
Graduating from one of the best European art schools, the Stroganov Art Academy in Moscow, established in the 19th century, helped me master different creative activities — drawing, painting, sculpture, product and graphic design.
