“I grew up in the magnificent city of Saint Petersburg. My mother Emilia Shraga is a musician, and my father Vyacheslav Shraga was a painter. No wonder that the audio-visual side of things became two major areas of my interest. From my mother I inherited a musical ear and from my father — poetic and compassionate vision. I have zero drawing skills, however.
I started out as a photojournalist in 2008. After moving in 2011 to Israel I began applying my journalistic skills to humanitarian photography, performing arts photography, and documentary filmmaking.
I live with my family in the forested hills near Jerusalem.
I provide photography and videography services to international humanitarian organizations, theaters, musicians, dancers, and private clients.
