Contemporary Photographic Art from Moscow (Art & Design)
by Alexander Tolnay
Publisher's Description
In the 1970s, an artistic movement began in Moscow, attempting to move away from the established documentary style of photojournalism towards a more subjective artistic preparation of images. The original proponents of this movement began experimenting in unofficial, amateur camera clubs, and were eventually taken into the fold of legitimate art-making. Now, with the advent of computer manipulation, a strong case has been made for the alternate reality the photographic experience provides. This book is a fascinating look into the work of the movement's current protagonists, most of whom are unfamiliar to the world's public. A refreshing and exciting new view of photography.
