My name is Boris Shirman, I am a Photojournalism student at Rochester Institute of Technology. I am a first-generation American, whose family came to America from the former Soviet Union.

I was taught Russian as a second language and raised and geared towards my parent’s scientific professions until I took my first art class in high school where I learned that visual imagery is just as good of a storyteller as anything else and that sitting in a dark room for 5 hours is a good use of time.

I specialize in event coverage, candid street photography and storytelling. If you are interested in any of my photographs for prints or want me to cover any of your events, or you just want to ask me a question please get in touch and I'll be happy to talk.
