The Russia You’ll Never See On Postcards Through The Lens Of Photographer Alexander Petrosyan


Alexander Petrosyan

Award-winning photographer Alexander Petrosyan has spent decades discovering what makes his home town tick: the everyday comedy and drama of a city built on contradictions. Alexander Petrosyan doesn’t think pictures can change the world, but he does believe they can help you understand it a little better. Having received his first camera as a birthday gift at the age of 12, the photographer quit and came back to the practice several times before turning professional in 2000.

The one constant inspiration is the streets of St. Petersburg, where he has lived his entire life. The city’s historical centre consists of just a few dozen square miles and Alexander knows every corner by heart. Any pictures he takes while travelling, he says, are best kept private – the eye of a tourist can only offer a fleeting glimpse from the outside. “This is my world,” he says of St. Petersburg.

“The most difficult thing is not to repeat yourself,” he says. “Get away from your own signature style and traditions; you have to update your thinking and seek change constantly.”
