Ruslan Smyrnov


PhotoVogue Resident. I was born in the Ukrainian city of Kherson. When I was only two days old, my mother and I flew to Crimea - the place she studied at the university. While she was studying I was nursed, nurtured and entertained by the African-American students living in the neighbouring student dormitory. They called me “Svetlyachok”- a little firefly in Ukrainian. Since early childhood I have found it amusing to watch people trying to know their story and essence Warm greetings to artists and collectors! It is my pleasure to bring your attention to the collection of photographs featuring unique and original individuals whom I, by fate, found a sincere connection with and achieved an honest contact with engaging them in natural posing.
