Vladimir was born on August 11, 1996 in Geneva.
His first visual shock was on September 11, 2001, when, at age five, he discovered the impact of images in video footage of the collapse of the Twin Towers in New York. His deuteranopia is detected at six years. At fourteen, an animal photographer introduced him to the profession. As a teenager with his own device, he develops a passion for traveling, first with his parents. At eighteen, he trained at the Swiss Institute of Photography (Zurich) and began traveling alone to shoot. His subjects are as urban as animals or landscapes. His training completed, distant destinations attract him. He travels to Mozambique, South Africa, Iceland, Norway, the Faroe Islands, while discovering the Swiss backpack. In 2015, he published some of his photographs in his first book Next World. His first solo show dates from February 2017 (Geneva, Arcadem Gallery). During his trip to Mongolia (May 2018), the landscape structure of the Gobi desert offers him the support he was looking for his artistic approach,
presented in his last exhibition.
