Artur Baboev was born in 1985 in Leningrad, now St Petersburg. He now lives in Moscow. His creative journey in photography began with landscapes in which he was always looking for a focal object. Quite often this would be a horse. After some time Artur turned his attention almost exclusively to horses attempting to capture all the most striking and spellbinding traits of this proud and elegant animal. Artur has been travelling for some years photographing his favourite models. His first book "Golden Horse, the legendary Akhal-Teke" was published in 2014 in English and German. Artur has taken part in and won many international photographic competitions.
