My vision is life. I try to capture moments not only created during a photo shoot but also those precious unexpected moments that each one of us has. When I hold the camera it is my only eye, it is my only feeling - I see and feel through the lens. I see is what I feel, and I feel is what I shoot. Every image bears piece of me inside. The EXIF data of every image has my soul. It is hidden underneath all those layers, so minuscule - yet it engulfs the whole image.
Every photographer is a visionary - seeing the world as it changes, feeling the world with the smoothness of their glass, touching the hearts with their shutters, and illuminating the darkness of the future with the flashes.
I’m a visionary. I’m a photographer. I’m Viktor Nagornyy.
