My name is Valerii Tkachenko. I’m a city landscape fine art photographer living in Kiev, Ukraine. I was born in Poltava region, Ukraine. I have always liked taking pictures and admired the classic photographers like Ansel Adams, Alfred Stieglitz and a Chinese artist Dong Hong-Oai. I experiment with the traditional Chinese style, added calligraphy and modeled an ancient style in my travel urban photographs. My efforts are to artistically document the historical aspect of common life and the good in life. I want the scene to produce an emotional response in others like it did for me.
