I've always been enthralled and mesmerized by the mysterious yet raw, stark and timeless quality of black & white photography. What we lose from the lack of colour, we gain in some unexplainable emotional pull. Because of this, I wanted to dedicate my first book to this fascinating niche in photography. This is a look at some places around the world in black & white.

Sergei Yahchybekov was born and raised in Lviv, Ukraine. At a young age, in this picturesque and multicultural city, he developed his love for arts and culture, and everything urban. He moved to Toronto, Canada in his teen years, and with greater opportunities to travel, his passion for photography was born in the desire to capture the beautiful things that he saw along the way. Thanks to an innate curiosity and hard-working values instilled in him by his humble upbringing and loving family, combined with a natural visual instinct and a creative mind, he taught himself everything he knows about photography. In addition to travel and urban photography, he shoots everything from fashion to portraits, and anything interesting in between. Until life takes him elsewhere, he lives in Toronto.
