My real name is Ivan Bohdan. Well, here I am, born. The first couple of hundred kilometers after my birth set the rhythm of my life. I have learned, am learning, and will always be learning. A few years ago, I picked up a camera. I began to search for my identity in photography. I am endowed with stubbornness and talent, but I am only sure of the former. I fear that praise and fame will challenge me. In such cases, the usual remedy is studying the classics, self-criticism, and a cold shower. Married, but happy. Unaffiliated, but very principled. I am determined to acquire new skills and develop old ones over the next 40 years.
