In an interview to RIA "Daghestan", the author admitted that he likes to make portraits, especially portraits of the elderly highlanders, and do the panoramic, landscape and scenery shooting.

"Almost all the works are exhibited for the first time, although they have been published in various periodicals. I really love the portrait, especially the villager portrait. All the works are black-and-white to show our "outgoing" Daghestan," - Chutuev says.

According to the visitors, Kamil Chutuev is one of the few artists in the photographer profession in Daghestan, a master who can make out something important and valuable.
