Museum Photobiennale of Contemporary Photography allows us to introduce the oeuvre of professional photographers and photo artists who have just started their career to the museum visitors. In Russia such a museum project was first introduced in 2009. The purpose of the third and the following Biennale projects is to reveal the new names and tendencies in all the types and genres of contemporary Russian photography and to draw visitors' attention to the artists' creative potential.

Following the exhibition project that started in 2009, the Russian museum has collected the works of photographers from all corners of Russia. The Third Photobiennale presents 319 photographers both famous and beginners from 53 conglomerations of Russian Federation. The format of the exhibition reflects all the variety of movements in the art of contemporary photography. Staged and direct pictorial photography, still life, portrait, landscape, and nu are displayed all together and give a visitor more ideas about the different approaches to comprehension and embodiment of the classic stories.

Besides creative purpose Photobiennale is aimed at reaching one more important goal. The vast territory of Russia is often a challenge when it comes to face-to-face communication. In this respect the Russian Museum allows the participants who live and work far from the central cities an amazing opportunity to show their original works at one of the biggest museums of Russian art in the country and in the world.
