Alex Klimov has been photographing since 2000 and lives in Kaliningrad, Russia.

"The first time I picked up the camera when I saw the famous sculpture of David by Michelangelo–I was looking at this flawless male figure and realized that, like Michelangelo, I wanted to capture this magic of a male body. For me, the human body is a wonderful gift of nature, and my mission, as a photographer, is to record and preserve this beauty right then and there and then pass it on to others for their appraisal."
