Alexey Ivanov presented an exhibition in the genre of street photography, which is really complicated and that’s why it is not so popular nowadays. Here you cannot hide behind the saving phrase of many camera owners: «This is my visoin!» Here either you could predict, calculate the situation and appear at the right time at the right place, or… you came to the wrong place at the wrong time…
Alexey’s devotion to the analog photography should be mentioned, though it seems that widespread digital cameras with gigabytes of memory are the most suitable for the street photography. Photographer loses in speed factor, complicates the task for himself, but if it can be solved, a charm of the film grain fills the stopped moment with truly unique emotional mood.
Alexey Ivanov has intentionally chosen the photogallery «Rachmaninov garden» for the exhibition «Look through the visible». «The concept of this gallery space is consonant with my idea of the picture where emotion and thought are fundamental, – says Alexey. – I think that many visitors of this gallery will be interested in my photographic works, and their opinion is very important for me».
