About Me - Mitchell Kanashkevich

About Me

I am a tirelessly curious world wanderer and a travel/documentary photographer. My main passion lies in capturing disappearing ancient cultures and the human condition in unique, challenging situations. 

My range of subjects is fairly broad, but whether I am photographing nomadic shepherds in India, life in the last traditional villages of Eastern Europe or sulfur miners working in a volcanic crater, my common aim is always the same - to capture the human element. I freelance and shoot documentary photo stories and I write eBooks, mostly in collaboration with “Craft & Vision” as well as “Digital Photo School”.

Much of my travel/documentary photography is represented by Getty Images, while my cultural portraits, both colour and black and white are in the private collections of photo lovers and collectors worldwide. This website should provide a good general idea of what I do. For a more extensive collection of my images, please go to the ‘archive’ section. For eBooks simply click ‘eBooks’ on the navigation bar.
