Oleksandr Savruk, 61, living in Ukraine, Kyiv. Photography is my lifetime passion. I have magazine publications and participated in art exhibitions. Other roles in life are an educator, manager (the Dean of business school), and management consultant.

Statement: I am a photographer with a love for humankind, looking for a better understanding of human nature and the nature of social life through photography, such a unique medium. Areas of interest are mostly street and people photography. I admire classic European street photographers, and in my works, I am looking for metaphors and archetypes, somebody would say immanent objects. This style brings enough technical and aesthetic capabilities to play with these aspects of people’s lives. I want to achieve quality in my photography that goes far beyond a physical representation of people and reveals their values, rituals, aspirations, and aspects of their daily lives.
