Soviet Photography
JANUARY 19, 2017 - MARCH 30, 2017

Group exhibition of photographs taken between 1930 and 1985 within the Soviet Union.

"Photography has all the rights, and all the merits, necessary for us to turn towards it as the art of our time. Contradictions of perspective. Contrasts of light. Contrasts of form. Points of view impossible to achieve in drawing and painting. Moments altogether new, never seen before... compositions whose boldness outstrips the imagination of painters... The negative transmits altogether new stimuli to the sentient mind and eye." - Aleksander Rodchenko (1891-1956)
