Oleg Oprisco

Photographs

I am Oleg Oprisco and I was born in the small town of Lviv, in western Ukraine. When I was 16 years old, I started working as a small photolab. As an operator, part of my job I had a few buttons to control the color, brightness and contrast. I lived for several years in "reality show" mode, observing every day life. I have visited thousands of weddings, birthdays and many other special occasions. I could do this forever, in what I call "robot" mode. This means working seven days a week for several months. This experience taught me what colors people like. I am using this information to this day. At this time I started taking pictures of friends and acquaintances. I experimented with many kinds, but it was a photography that brought me the most pleasure. At age 18, I moved to Kiev where I worked as an assistant to a famous advertising photographer. I was making money, but I lost my creativity. For a long time I thought that I was able to do so I tried to shoot on medium format film. That changed my life. It's difficult to advise something original. I have a standard list of the legendary representatives of classical photography and painting. I like to seek inspiration in the life around us. All my pictures are the best pictures of our lives and dreams.
