“Knizhnaya Shafa” store gallery . “Vintage and virage”,07.09-06.10

In the year of the 30th anniversary of the historic photo exhibition “The Beginning” in the Minsk House of Cinema (now the Red Church), it would make sense to organize a large retrospective exhibition of new Belarusian photography, the foundation of which was laid in the 1980s by young authors from informal photographic groups and associations. But such a project requires a lot of serious intellectual and financial investment our photographic community is not ready to make yet. Therefore, the idea of a ​​personal archaeological work seemed to me quite more real and feasible. But if we cannot celebrate the anniversary of “The Beginning”, we can at least grab an occasion not to forget about it!

This small and largely eclectic exhibition of my vintage photoworks from the projects “Persona Non Grata” and “Lucida Momenta” will give the public an opportunity to dive into a variety of topics that the authors of the time of their creation were concerned about. You will feel the “perestroika” aesthetics of the photography of the 1980-1990s and, perhaps, think about the virages of creative destinies of the authors who made their long way to the heights of the Belarusian photography and brought it world recognition.
