Acerca del autor

Yury Toroptsov
toroptsov Paris, France
Born in 1974 in a small rural community near Vladivostok, Yury Toroptsov left his native Russia to study at the New School for Social Research in New York after having won a prestigious scholarship. Nourished by his Far-Eastern origins, American travels and the current residence in Europe, Yury Toroptsov keeps at the core of his work what constitutes a common denominator for those distant cultures: people and their identity and the permanence of myths. Memories, metamorphosis, profane and sacred are the recurring themes in his photographs. Lives and works in Paris.

Very touching and unusual project. Found it very easy to relate, being from a former USSR country myself- love the balance of fiction and reality!
