I lived in the big city of Moscow, worked for a big newspaper and was raising two kids. Everything is revealed between the lines of my newspaper stories – a miraculous chain of causes and effects.
In 2008 I landed to the Kalahari desert of South Africa, which was sitting as a nail in my head for a long-long time since I saw the movie Gods must be crazy.
I then moved to South Africa in 2009. I was lecturing at the UNISA (University of SA), had my own personal photo exhibition and started running. Now I am traveling permanently, combining trail running with ultralight long distance hiking.
I’ve got a feeling that I am in a film under somebody else’s direction about how I manage what is happening to me all the time. When I realised I could never edit this movie I simply enjoy starring in it.
