Sirbion

I don´t think I am going to say anything to this man. Just.. please, be kind to his english, he really tried. And you don´t t need any language for his photographs, so let´s break the language barrier.


His words:

1. What´s your real name? Do you wish you had any other name? Or did you ever use a pseudonym?
- My name is Alexander. I like my name. Vinternete I use a pseudonym - Sirbion.

2. Where do you live and for how long? Your wish-I-lived-in country?
- I live in Russia in the city of Voronezh. Always wanted to live in Finland, I really like this country.

3. When did you find out you like photography? What was your first photo ever taken?
- I began to seriously pursue photography about 2 years ago. My first photograph was a picture of a bee, which I won two competitions.

4. What equipment do you use?
- I filmed the Canon 5D. Sometimes I take pictures on the camera Lubitel-2 and Leica-II, but only for themselves and for pleasure.

5. Do you produce any other kind of art?
- I used to draw, now I just take pictures.

6. Is there anything you couldn´t live without?
-
I can not live without my loved one and the weather. I can never resist the opportunity to make a couple of good shots in fine weather, even when I'm busy with other things.

7. Where do you go for inspiration?
- For inspiration, I usually look at art-house films, often with a sad ending. For me, this is the best tutor to be creative.

8. Do you have your favourite photographers?
- I have lots of favorites, such as Nick Lisitsyn, Ruslan Lobanov, Gennady Tarakanov.

You can find Sirbion at his deviantArt and take a look at his whole gallery.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with his English (:

I agree. I completely understood his answers.

He sounds like a very interesting guy. I like how he watches sad movies for inspiration. I also like his use of vignette and how his photos are focused and uncluttered.
