Minsk School of Photography: 1960's - 2000's
SAINT-PETERSBURG  •  State Museum and Exhibition center ROSPHOTO  •  22 August - 28 September 2014
 
 

The exhibition Minsk School of Photography presents a key phenomenon in the history of Belarusian photography of the second part of the XX century. The display comprises more then 150 pieces from the collection of the State Museum and Exhibition center ROSPHOTO. The works by the Belarusian photographers have come into ROSPHOTO’s possession at different times and have been obtained from different sources. The first picture was acquired in 2002, the year when ROSPHOTO was founded. Eventually, due to the increase of the number of works, a collection of Belarusian photography was formed. The largest and the most comprehensive acquisition took place in 2013, when the museum became the owner of more than 700 artworks, representing the oeuvre of 14 Minsk-based photographers. Thus, ROSPHOTO’s collection now features the works by the most notable representatives, the key figures of the Belarusian photography, which makes the collection an important and extremely comprehensive illustration of the Belarusian photography of the mid 20th – early 21st century.

After the World War II Minsk became the center of the Belarusian photography. In the 1950s it witnessed the dawn of the amateur photography movement. In 1960 it resulted in the foundation of “Minsk”, one the first photo clubs in the post-war Soviet Union, and the first one in Belarus. In the 1970s the achievements of many of the club’s members made it possible to speak of a new art phenomenon, which was named “the Belarusian creative photography.” For a decade the “Minsk”-based photographers regularly held the photo festivals Photographica, one of the most important and influential photo events in the USSR. At the ROSPHOTO’s exhibition that period is represented by the masterpieces of such renowned artists as Viktor Butra, Anatoly Dudkin, Yevgeny Kozyula and Mikhail Zhilinsky.

The contemporary Minsk photography is represented at the exhibition by the works of young photographers – The Creation series by Daniil Parnuk, a portrait series Two Minutes Later by Andrey Kolesnikov, a series of gum prints by Andrey Voskresenskiy.

The exhibition presents the Minsk school of photography by the artworks of 20 Belarusian photographers: Maria Bone, Viktor Butra, Andrey Voskresenskiy, Mikhail Garus, Ekaterina Gurtovaya, Anatoly Dudkin, Michael Zhilinsky, Viktor Juravkov, Victor Kalenik, Sergey Kozhemyakin, Evgeniy Kozyulya, Andrey Kolesnikov, Daniil Parnuk, Uladzimir Parfianok, Igor Peshehonov, Igor Savchenko, Aleksey Trufanov, Alexander Uglianitsa, Albert Cehanovic, Vladimir Shakhlevich.
