Mitchell Kanashkevich

Throughout much of my adult life, I’ve been travelling, seeking adventure and ways to learn from and interact with cultures which are very different from my own. Photography became a great excuse to look deeper and to make my experiences more intense.

I usually find my subjects by chance, while I travel. But, I'm particularly drawn to ancient traditions which are still surviving and evolving. To stories of people working in unique, challenging environments and those who live in close bond with nature.

My main goal as a photographer is to create the kinds of images which combine a strong sense of story and convey what it felt like to be with the people I met in the places I visited.

If you want to get a sense for what I do. Here's a video that I made for Panasonic Lumix.
