Alexey lives in Moscow, Russia. He has used alternative processes since 2008, when he printed his first cyanotype, and now, after trying several different techniques, he mostly work with copper plate photogravure.
Printing photos by hands is like playing musical instrument. Each technique has it's own soul like a violin or a brass trumpet has it's own specific sound. This is very opposite to digital "push the button" manner, when you get a picture of a standard quality made by device without any human touch. A hand made photography is a part of our civilisation, and I am happy to contribute to keep it alive."
