My name is Artem and my story as a photographer begins after I moved from Russia to San Francisco. Emotions overwhelmed me from the new experiences and beauty of this city as well as it’s diverse, open-minded, creative and wonderful people. As I walked for hours watching the unique pace of life in San Francisco, I tried to hold on to the countless moments by taking pictures with a regular camera. Still, I could not fully express my emotions and I drew sketches of my future works. Immediately, the skills I learned in art school started
to come back to me. After a few years my co-worker saw my photographs and offered me to use his professional camera. It was from that moment that my life has changed and I realized that I want to do this professionally. Every photograph, every project is a step forward, never stopping at what has already been achieved, I continue to push the limits of light and color, so I can share and convey the beauty of this world. Enjoy this world and it’s beauty.
“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
