Peppy. Lame. Prosocial. Born in 1988 in a circus family in Moscow, he grew up surrounded by people who perceived magic as something ordinary. At the age of 19, still studying in a pedagogical college, he became interested in photography and shortly after receiving a BA in social pedagogy he enrolled to Rodchenko Art School. While studying, Kir separately shoots circus where he was growing up and people suffering from cancer. Over time, his photography developed into one construction of the intimate and the exposed. Indiscriminately mixing together documentary and play-like photography, Kir recreated his deeply personal microcosm, the place very brutal, sore, but still magical.
