Born in 1948.
I have been taking pictures of wildlife in the Far East of Russian since
1990 and every year I spend 70-150 days in this remort region photographing
the rare and threatened animals. In particular, the highly endagered Amur
Tiger and the Amur Leopard.
I have been working with the Russian Academy of Sciences since 1991 and
I am an honorary member f the Academy's Far East branch and thei Institute
of Marine Biology. I am also a member of the Japan Professional Photographers
Society, and in 2013 hI had a major solo exhibition at the Russian Academy
