Solitary inquisitiveness seems to be a theme that runs throughout the photography of Vlad Chirkov.
Vlad discovered photography by having an object with him that was not necessarily intended to be a camera. Since Vlad always carried around his iPhone, it provided a way for him to start capturing the moments of his life walking the streets of San Francisco, catching the bus or heading out to the coast.
His style developed through his Instagram community and later, a group of photographers that make up Tiny Collective. The feedback and constant discussions about photography started manifesting itself in Vlad’s work. And since his work happens within this mobile photography space, Vlad’s never seen much need for him to shoot with anything but his iPhone.
