Name: Sergei Karpov
Profession: Photographer and multimedia producer
How long have you been doing photography? I have been photographing for more than ten years, profesionally since 2010.
What style or genre most interests you? I am now completely focused on documentary projects, which are now being output in various formats: from photography or video to complex multimedia projects.
Can you give us a short description of your city? Where is it located? What is it famous for? Volgograd, formerly Stalingrad, is the city I grew up in. Today it is a very depressing city and region, despite the fact that in 2018 matches for the World Cup will take place here.
What are some things that only locals would know about the city? The city was utterly destroyed during the Second World War. Today, this is the most depressing of Russia's million-resident cities.
Which places or sites are a must for someone to see if they visit your city? Mamayev Kurgan and the remains of Tsaritsyn.
Battle of Stalingrad
