former musician, he built a rock band “A Long Distance” being at the second grade of the University. He was playing drums, singing, writing music and lyrics. He thinks that creation does not disappear – it transforms into other fields of art.
In 2000 he felt like trying “Zenit EM” camera, which was left from his father. The first photos were usual – city, people, nature… Mostly he liked to make portraits.
The exhibition of the german photographer Robert Hoyser which took place in Marber palace in 2001 was his first serious discovery and stimulus for further creation. And Serge realized that he could take photos of everything – the black plowed fields, the wineyards,supported by sticks, the geometric projections of pipes on the roofs, the naked men and women bodies – only if it was beautiful and harmonious.
Serge Lis`s mother and grandmother were dressmakers – so he grew up surrounded by the sounds of Zinger sewing machine. That is why he was always interested in fashion. He had always sewn clothes for himself – trousers, shirts and coats, using “Burda Moden” magazine patterns. And when he became keen on photography he started to make photos of the designer`s works at the Defile na Neve, Modny Desant, Admiralteyskaya Igla fashion shows.After some time he decided to make projects himself and to embody them withthe help of the models. So it became his own creation from A to Z.
Lis is sure, that photography is art. So he is trying to show the main things in his works – beauty in harmony and harmony in beauty.
