Welcome to the vernissage at unique exhibition dedicated to
USSR history and culture.

You will see not just photos: the history of the country and a whole photographic culture revealing itself in unique photoprint techniques no longer used. The exhibition displays unique materials: photographs taken by the best amateur and professional photographers who have already became classics of the World Art of photography in the period from the early 20s to the late 90s of XX century. There are Soviet and Russian photographers: Aleksandr Rodchenko, El Lisitskiy, Boris Ignatovich, Georgy Petrusov, Lev Borodulin, Vladimir Vyatkin, Lev Sherstennikov and many others. There is one common thing for all the variety of the authors: the highest level of culture and contents of the photos, photographic quality and mastery of photographic printing.

More then photographs - it is the time machine and the textbook of USSR history and culture. 77 original prints present portraits of well-known political and cultural figures (Leonid Brezhnev, Yuri Gagarin, Andrei Sakharov, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Maya Plisetskaya and many more), art-photography and reports.

The exhibition is organised by RossArt gallery (Zurich).
