BAKU JAZZ FESTIVAL
18th EDITION, 2023
JAZZ PHOTO EXHIBITION 2016
BY ARKADY MITNIK
Close relatives and friends call me Flying Dutchman, however since this nickname reflects the essence of my life, I am not feeling aggrieved, absolutely not, Being born in Ural, I grew up in Ukraine, served military in Moldova, immigrated to Israel, and last twenty years live in The Netherlands.
My main Engineering capacities are related to the Asian and North American regions, yet my personal priorities include journalism, cycling, skiing, photography of jazz concerts and festivals, and photo-art. Geography of my hobbies is wide, too. Israel, Poland, Ukraine, Germany, Austria and other Western European countries do not completely cover places that influenced my professional and artistic development.
Cycles of Jazz and Artistic photography, articles and reports, meeting so many interesting people, and new exciting possibilities... so who am I? Flying Dutchman, or perhaps simply Citizen of the World..?
