Photo Exhibitions: Towards The Light And World Press Photo
June 23, 2013 12:30

World Press Photo - 2013

Two great photo exhibitions “Towards the light” of Igor Palmin and World Press Photo are running in Moscow until June 30. 

Igor Palmin learned the basics of photography in the first Moscow photo club “Novator”. In 1966, he appeared among nonconformists where he came in contact with the artists and captured the artistic life movement. Today most of the exhibitions about nonconformists are held with Palmin’s works. Since the 80's, he began to shoot architecture; later he released several books about modern and symbolism and became the winner of the State Prize in Literature and Art. 

The exhibition includes 25 works of architectural series where the main role has been played by the light. The exhibition is in the Center of Photography of Lumiere brothers. 

World Press Photo collected two hundred works of the finalists of the World Press Photo Contest 2013 in the cultural center Krasnyi Oktyabr (Red October). The photos were taken last year by photographers from the whole world and selected in February of 103 thousand applicants. The exhibition covers so many topics: penguins with monkeys, the poor with children, sumo wrestlers with synchronized swimmers, but the focus as usual is on woes: wars, tsunamis, terrorist attacks, corpses, blood, destroyed homes and weeping orphans.

Swede Paul Hansen won the main prize with his photography made at funeral of two Palestinian children, died in Sector Gaza during a rocket attack in Israel.
