Valeriy Tretyakov, Kyiv Member Since May 2010 Artist Statement Hi everybody! My name is Valeriy Tretyakov. I was born in 1954 in Kyiv, Ukraine. In the past I was an aviation engineer. My first picture was made in 1969 by camera Zorki-S, similar to the legendary Leica II. Serious interest for photography came to me in 2008 year after my trip to the United States. Now I have two hobbies - photography and travel, organically combined with each other. EFIAP.
