Legend of Russian Photography Vadim Gippenreiter Passed Away

According to his student, the well-known photographer Anton Lange, in regards of his contribution into Russian photography Vadim Gippenreiter can be compared only to the legendary American photographer Ancel Adams.

      The great Russian photographer, the author of nearly 50 albums with unique photos of the most pristine nooks of Russia, Vadim Gippenreiter, aged 99, died on July 16.


      The master's student, the famous photographer Anton Lange has reported about this to TASS.

      "It is the death of a true legend. He was a legend in many respects. Certainly, he was a legend of the Soviet photo of the late and middle Soviet era. He photographed all the largest eruptions of the Kamchatka and Kuril volcanoes for 30 years. He made classical shots of the Russian North, the Urals, the Far East, and Central Asia. And those were his single expeditions".
