Oleg Videnin was born in 1963 in Bryansk, Russia. In 1985 he graduated from the Bryansk Technological Institute, “a Forestry Engineer.” Before becoming a professional photographer Oleg tried many other occupations. He was a forester, a journalist, and even an actor in a local theater. All this gave him the necessary life experience and perception of a commoner as a personality. This is very clearly reflected in his portrait artworks.
Oleg Videnin is the member of Photographer.ru agency from 2005.
His photographs are in the collection of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (Moscow), the Bashkir State Museum of Art of M.V. Nesterova (Ufa), in private collections in Russia and worldwide.
