Ildar Sadikov
Practices photography since 2012. His inspiration: the sunny, beautiful and welcoming city of Tashkent (Uzbekistan), where he lives. It is divided into 2 parts – the modern megalopolis and the old town, where the time has stopped, where you can’t buy cigarettes and alcohol in shops, where people are honest and children are not obsessed with video games. In each and every of his photographic adventures, Ildar is inspired by the feeling that he is in a place reminding him of his childhood.

 Genre: street photography, documentary photography. From the beginning, he knew these were the genres that fulfill him. Most of his works are black & white because he believes – as one of the legendary photographers said – “Only in the black & white photo lives the soul of the shot.”

Ildar says that he doesn’t take photos everybody will like; he rather photographs life as it is.
