I am Pstrikailov

 

Pstrikailov portrait

I'm an artist working on the verge of fine art and street photography. In my photos I show real people in authentic situations, yet I pay extreme attention to aesthetics. My art is all about the mood and a certain vibe that makes you react emotionally to an image.

My photos have been mostly taken in Warsaw, Poland. It’s a great city to live in but not aesthetically spectacular. What I aim to do, however, is to make Warsaw feel like a mysterious, almost magical place. That’s how I perceive the world around me and I try to share that perception with the viewer.

I was awarded Main Prize at the FujiFilm Street Photo Awards and my photograph was among the finalists at the largest street photography contest in the world - Miami Street Photo Festival. My works have also been honoured and selected by world famous Magnum photographers: Bruce Gilden and Martin Parr.
