Sergey Poliakov

The object of my photography - is the city as a living system.
The subject, that I’m trying to show is the beauty of everyday urban life.

I was born in 1990 in Leningrad, when it was still Soviet Union. I’m only a little bit older than my country - Russia. I graduated from the journalism department of the St. Petersburg State University, the same faculty, where such photographers as Yuri Rost, Ivan Kurtov and Alexander Taran have studied. During my studies I learnt about photography from my teachers in university, but also from my father, who used to have a little photo-editing studio at home when I was young.

I've been making street and travel pictures since 2009. At the same time I started to write my personal photo-travel blog and write travel reports to aside of my professional activities. Last year I decided to focus more on web- and digital-projects and finished a retraining program to become a web-developer and also completed a retouching and photo-editing course at Efim Shevchenko.
