Anni Leibowitz in the General Headquarters

The contemporary arts division of the State Hermitage presents a temporary exhibition of Anni Leibowitz photographs, which were given by the author to the Hermitage as a gift. Anni’s photos are basically her life. “I am picturing my epoch” – Anni said in one of the interviews, and her “epoch” is John Lennon and Liza Minnelli, Richard Nixon and Michael Baryshnikov, Michael Jackson and Elisabeth II. The first serious job for Anni Leibowitz was the “Rolling Stone” magazine, where she started working still studying in the San Francisco Arts Institute. This title played the key role in the Leibowitz’s career. The legendary pose – naked John Lennon hugging Yoko – was invented by Leibowitz and the print on the magazine’s front page was legendary also (when the magazine was printed John was already dead).

State Hermitage General Headquarters, until 21.01.2019

Saint Petersburg is in wait for the ship navigation close out, which means that the most romantic period of the city life is coming to an end – the bridges will soon stop to draw. The postcard view of the drawn Palace bridge is saved on the phone of anyone who was there to bear witness. So please, print this photo or make a poster. Let it have a well-deserved place in your house, this photo is a part of your personal story connected to this beautiful city and it’s bridges.

“Vacation and other stories”, the archive photography

“Rosphoto” holds an exhibition of polish photography created by the curator and photographer Mikolay Dlugosh, until 25 of November. Dlugosh deals with original photoarchaeology, working with private collections and states archives. He makes selections of pictures, describing one or other part of life. His actual project is dedicated to sports and vacations: private non-professional photos and amateur videos show alpine ski descents, motorboats and Baltic sea shores. A good reason to open our family photobooks and compare… How did we relax in USSR and how did the poles?
