31 january—1 april 2019
The 5th Photobiennale of contemporary photography is a new chapter in a large exhibition project of the Russian Museum dedicated to photography. A start was made in 2009 by an exhibition in the halls of the Marble Palace and the publication of a catalog. Having sparked interest both with viewers and participants, the project was continued. So, on a biennial basis, the Russian Museum organizes a display of the current state of the development of photography in Russia.

The Russian Museum engages a wide range of participants: not only professionals but also novice photographers and amateurs can show their work. The Photobiennale format remains unchanged from year to year, leaving the authors free choice and allowing them to reflect all the diversity of techniques, genres, and stylistic trends in contemporary photography.

295 artists from 71 towns and cities of the Russian Federation participate in the 5th Biennale. The exhibition is conventionally divided into eight thematic blocks: “City,” “Still Life,” “Nude,” “Landscape,” “Everyday Life,” and “Portrait.” The thematic and genre variety of works participating in the project allows revealing the multifaceted nature of the art of photography, to demonstrate its expressiveness and imaginality of artistic methods.
