Sergei Pavlov (1994) is Russian - Finnish photographer living in Finland. He grew up in a small, landlocked town of 10,000 people called Somero in southern Finland. Pavlov got passionate about the aesthetics of photography while he was a teenager and began working at a professional level when he was 14 shooting questionnaire portraits for the small local newspaper. Starting in the world of photography at such a young age has brought him a very multidimensional experience and career. Pavlov has been represented by Finnish and International photography agencies in the past and his work has been featured in international editorial magazines.
Pavlov’s own work focuses purely on analogue black and white photography printed traditionally in a darkroom. Be it documentary series or fashion editorials, the themes in his work are focused on studying, defining and questioning the human way relating to themselves and others from a emotional perspective.
Sergei is currently working as freelance photographer focusing on artistic projects and co-operating with different editorial clients, while also working as professional photography teacher.
