Vital Zyalkouski: My friends called me saying they saw this. I also took a look at it all today.
Euroradio: What do you feel about it?
Vital Zyalkouski: It is interesting. The situation is a bit funny. The reason for my fame makes me smile.
Euroradio: Have you travelled around many countries? Where have you been? Did you take pictures like this everywhere?
Vital Zyalkouski: Basically, these are the EU countries. I've been all around Europe. And I took these pictures in Europe.
Euroradio: Why do you take pictures like that? You don't have anyone to take a picture of you because you travel alone?
Vital Zyalkouski: When I travel with my friends, I travel by car. However, if I fly, I travel alone. I don't take a lot of luggage so I don't need a big camera, I take pictures on my cell phone camera. I choose a peculiar route so it is more convenient for me to travel alone. It never happens the way like, I come somewhere and stay there lying on a beach for two weeks. I spend several days on one city.
Euroradio: Where do you live now? What do you do?
Vital Zyalkouski: I live in Antwerp, I am an industrial designer, work as an engineer-constructor. I have a Belarusian citizenship, but I have lived in Europe for 9 years by now.
Euroradio: Where did you live before?
Vital Zyalkouski: My parents are from Maladechna. I lived in Minsk. I studied information technologies in the Belarusian national technical university there. I worked by assignment for 2 years. I have always wanted to go to Europe. Thus, after my assignment work was over, I went there to study. I finished the post-graduate education and stayed in Belgium to work.
Euroradio: Have you already felt your popularity?
Vital Zyalkouski: I was in Minsk on Monday. When I was going from Minsk to Vilnius, two youngsters approached me asking to take a picture with them. I didn't understand the reason then, but yesterday I saw this all and it became clear.
Euroradio: You say it makes you smile, but why are you so serious at the pictures?
Vital Zyalkouski: When I come to a city, I check it. My photos are not for someone to look at closely. I don't take them for the public. This is just for my personal archive. I don't take special pictures. I do everything easily, - answers Vital, seriously, like a real engineer.
