Elliott Erwitt's Kolor at Red October
03.10.2015 – 29.11. 2015
Although Kodak introduced its first color films in the 1930s, it took a long time to find a technically satisfactory method of printing – color prints were unstable and failed to correspond to intensity and saturation of the original positive film. Thus, collectors and museums neglected color photography for several decades. In addition, despite the fact that John Szarkowski curated a solo show of William Eggleston, who is regarded as a pioneer of color photography, at MoMA in 1976, most photographers still didn't consider color photography to be a suitable medium for artistic expression. Back then, color photography was mostly employed for editorials and advertising and was shelved in the archives eventually. Elliott Erwitt's color photographs met the same fate.

11.07.2012– 16.09. 2012
Vladimir Antoshchenkov’s solo exhibition St.Petersburg. Urban Classic in The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography is an important event in Moscow’s art scene. The best photographer among the architects (that`s how we should actually call Antoshchenkov) is a stranger in the capital.
