This event has ended.
Alexander Gronsky is internationally renowned for a photographic practice which reflects upon landscapes of contemporary Russia. Having pursued the career as a press photographer in Russia and its surrounding regions since 1999, he came to pursue a independent path towards documentary in 2008. Referring to himself as a landscape photographer, he focuses on vast spaces and investigates the relationship between local populations and their surrounding environment, often exploring the border regions between suburbs and cities, the personal and public space, and between living and death.
This exhibition features his major series Less than One (2006-2009), centered on the sparsely populated and isolated areas of Russia, The Edge (2008-2009) in which he explored the snowy fields surrounding Moscow, where there are many apartments built in the age of the Soviet Union and Pastoral (2008-2012) depicting the activities of local people in the fringes of Moscow, the suburbs between Russia’s most populous city and the countryside that surrounds it.
