Documentary family photography is about happiness and love, chaos and drama the same time. It is not about blurry backgrounds. In this style of photography backgrounds are highlighted and adds another deeper dimension, to find there something, we overlook in daily life.
What inspires me to create the images in the way I do? Childhood by itself. I can see childhood as a most positive period of person’s life. Because at that time child has less reproach and more hopes for life. In childhood daily life happens right here right now: moods, emotions, relationships, brilliant ideas, freedom. All this dynamics exists in each every family. It’s mine, as a photographer’s choice, to select particular moments, to tell family story. So I chose positive ones.
