22 january 2014—17 february 2014

Charles Gordon Lennox (Lord March) began to work as professional photographer in the time of probationer practice in the studio of famous deputy director Stanley Kubrik while working on his masterpiece Barry Lindon. Since the midst of the 1970's he worked in Africa in the sphere of documental photography, and also made reportage shots for different issuesж photo still lives and another advertising works for the well-known European companies.

The appearance of digital photography that gives to the artist more scope in creative searches opened for March wide possibilities in the opening of individual comprehension of surrounding world. The Interpretation of Nature series by Charles March presents how significantly changed the world of photography during two centuries since its invention. In the works by Lord March the interpretation of a single natural motif (tree) strikes by freedom, specific quickness and sketchness that is characteristic for the drawing and possibly for the China classical brush painting. In the artist's creative oeuvre the traditional practice of revelation of the condition of nature through the experiments with the expressive means of photography had found its continuation and development. In the presented works the motion of photo-camera may be regarded as the movement of brush that gives the author an opportunity to see and present the usual landscape motif in unexpected foreshortenings and displacements. The exposition includes about 50 works created in the period from 2008 to 2012. 

The exhibition is held within the framework of the Cross-Year of Culture of Great Britain and Russia. The detailed Program of events devoted to this year will be published in January 2014 on Year of Culture website: www.ukrussia2014.ru
