«Voyage dans l’ancienne Russie» at the Musée Zadkine, Paris.
By way of this exhibition, visitors will have the chance to immerse themselves into a world that was thought to be lost forever – that of Russia before the Revolution.
The images taken between 1909 and 1916 by Sergei Mikhailovich Procoudine-Gorsky reflect everyday Russians with a freshness and unique tenderness. Produced in Russia in 1918, the photographs taken on some 200 glass plaques were acquired by the Library of Congress in Washington in 1948. Now digitized, the surprisingly contemporary images recreate a bygone era. Utterly fascinating.
Until April 13
