Life for many is divided into before and after. How has life changed is both a simple and a difficult question. It is simple because life has acquired new meanings, and difficult because you can’t remember how it was before. However, I can definitely say that everything has become either black or white; there are almost no grey areas left.

The transformation took place, and looking back on my previous works I can say that the changes took place both consciously and unconsciously. If we talk about a conscious transformation, I decided for myself that documentary photography is what is needed right now. If before I was a multi-genre photographer, in the spring of 2022 I realized that documentary photography is important and needed more than ever. As for the unconscious transformation, I almost stopped shooting in colour, using only black and white film – this is an unconscious decision.
