A Photographic Perspective on St. Petersburg

A Photographic Perspective on St. Petersburg
2 november 2020—14 december 2020
The Russian Museum presents the exhibition "A Photographic Perspective on St. Petersburg" which completes the contest organized in cooperation with the Professional Photocenter Foto-One. Photographers were offered to show their view on St. Petersburg without any limitations in technique, genre, or style. As a result of the contest, the professional jury chose 97 works which were included in the exhibition of the same name which will be held in the halls of the Stroganov Palace.

It is hard to find a city in Russia, which would be depicted as often as St. Petersburg. From the first years of its foundation to the present day painters, graphic artists, and photographers represented in their works historical events and everyday scenes full of greatness and originality of St. Petersburg architecture. Unlike traditional Russian cities, St. Petersburg inspires many people with its unfathomable mystery, and for some of them, it gives an impulse to express personal feelings in photography. Each and every photographer participating in the exhibition has his own, real and magical image of St. Petersburg.

The exhibition is organized with the support of the Professional Photocenter Foto-One and Canon.

Count Pavel Sergeevich Stroganov (1823-1911), traveling with his family in Italy in 1839-1841, captured the image of this country in numerous drawings, which were considered the works of an unknown master until recently. At the exhibition in the halls of the palace that belonged to the Stroganovs, the Russian Museum will show 60 wonderful drawings from its collection for the first time and comment in a multimedia show how their research was carried out, which made it possible to prove the authorship of Count Pavel Stroganov.
