Interview with Alexey Shifman

Hi there people,

As the great fans that you are, you know that I have an upcoming exhibition at RAW Streetphoto Gallery, in Rotterdam, around February next year.

This is a gallery solely dedicated to the genre of street photography, and this is a thing that fills my heart, but also puzzles me, since it's not a common thing to find around. A lot of photographers like me exhibit in bars, cafés or restaurants, simply because no gallery shows availability for emerging street photographers.

For this reason I decided to meet up with the gallery director, Alexey Shifman, to find out who he is and what are his motivations to have such space. So here follows a pleasant 30 minute talk I had with Alexey in a bar in Amsterdam.
