interview by Arnoldas Lukas Vaitkunas (read full interview here)
Sasha Kurmaz is Ukrainian photographer (born in 1986, Kiev) who I discovered on flickr website. There he is quite popular and famous. I thought, well his works are usual but somehow catchy and interesting. It seems that portraits and lifestyle in his photographs are something different and inexperienced. Well… maybe not all of us will kiss a man in our entire lifetime but this is what Sasha expresses through his photography. Something as he say that makes you enjoy the life.In 2008 Sasha graduated Ukraine State Academy of Art (Design Department).
