PhotoDepartament takes part in GROUND zin fest 2018

A place: Gallery-workshop GRAUND Sand

Moscow, Novopeschanaya, 23, building 7

Admission ticket to the fair (the ticket is purchased in each gallery):

150 rubles. (full)

75 rubles. (preferential)

PhotoDepartament participates in the Groan Zin fest 2, which will be held in Moscow on April 27, 28 and 29, at two galleries of the Ground.

GROUND zin fest – a large-scale event dedicated to small publishing projects and music labels. Within the framework of the festival, young artists, photographers, designers, writers and musicians will once again show all the trends of modern ideas embodied in the zines, magazines, books of the artist, and other experimental forms.

PhotoDepartament is engaged in projects that help to look, understand, explore and make a modern photo in the field of art and media. It is interesting for us to consider photography not only as an image, but also as a bearer of meanings about the world today and in the future.

We make printed, exhibition and online projects, the purpose of which is to find out how the image can tell us more than it shows. On GROUND zin fest we will show our last project – collection “Amplitude # 1”, who was in the finals of the book competition Aperture PhotoBook Award. And also bring self-publish books and prints of leading Russian photographers and artists – Yulia Borissova, Irina Popova, Yuri Gudkov, Irina Zadorozhnaya, Yana Romanova, Alexander Verevkin, Max Sher, Julia Spiridonova and others.

We believe that the image is also an occasion for conversation, which helps to make the process of their creation conscious.

April 28, Saturday, from 1 pm to 2 pm artists Alexander Verevkin, Yuri Gudkov and Yevgeny Molodtsov, and curator Nadia Sheremetova will give a discussion on the topic “When does the book make sense?”, where they will weigh all the pros and cons of a photobook from the point of view of the buyer of photobooks, and what is important is the artist who is already publishing and still planning to publish his own author’s book.

And on April 29 the team from the PhotoDepartment will take part in the discussion “The book of the artist in the digital age”, which is organized by the festival.

No longer photographer: Pulitzer Prize winner for 8 months already left the profession

Last week, American Ryan Kelly won the Pulitzer Prize in the category “News Photo”, a bit earlier – a prize winner of the prestigious photojournalism contest World Press Photo. In both cases, a shot was taken to him from a photograph taken last August during protests in Charlottesville, Virginia: then a car entered the crowd of demonstrators at high speed.

Kelly’s special victory is made by the fact that for about 8 months he has not been working as a photographer. The daily press photographer of the newspaper The Daily Progress, he replaced with the duties of social networking manager in one of the breweries in the city of Richmond.

As he writes Newsweek, photo, which brought Kelly several prestigious awards, he did on his last day in The Daily Progress: at that time, Ryan had already written a letter of resignation and was preparing to change his profession. “Little money, lots of work, huge stress,” explains the reasons for his departure from Kelly’s photo.

He notes: “My story is the same as the stories of many others: for all my love for journalism and the newspaper where I worked, in four years I just faded. Low wages, work at night and weekends – all this influenced my decision. I did not even see my wife very often. So we had to start looking for some opportunities in another sphere. “

“This is a crisis. If you look at who worked for The Daily Progress last summer and who works now, you will understand: almost half of journalists and editors resigned. Yes, some still stayed in the profession, but others left journalism, “says the Pulitzer Prize winner. “I have no idea how to change this, given the financial situation.” I’m scared to think about it. “

Kelly added that from time to time he still continues to shoot as a freelancer. However, he does not intend to return to work as a photojournalist.

First-line and behind-the-scenes: the photo exhibition of the publishing house “Kommersant”

First-line and behind-the-scenes: the photo exhibition of the publishing house "Kommersant"

At one time, the main post-Soviet newspaper Kommersant made a revolutionary breakthrough in photojournalism: documentary photo shoots with obligatory overtones and subtle irony came to replace the template shots. The varnished reality on newspaper photos was replaced by bright and vivid images – today such frames would certainly become the basis for popular memes. Until May 27, an exhibition of photographs of “Kommersant” of different years – from the chronicle of the putsch to our days – can be seen in the “Manezh”.

To shoot official events, sports events and important press conferences “from a different angle”, without regard for stereotypes and colleagues in the shop, is a special talent worthy of the whole exposition within the framework of the Moscow Photobiennale. In the lenses of merchant photographers an important statesman could acquire comic features, and the casual passer-by turned out to be a lyrical hero and the center of the narrative.

These frames are more like artistic and documentary photography than dry photojournalism, steeped in newspaper templates. Not surprisingly, the regular photographers of “Kommersant” more than once became winners of many photo contests – just last year one of the pictures received the prize of World Press Photo. In total, the archives of the newspaper have more than 11 million cadres, in other words, more than 11 million eloquent stories about life, politics, people and events that will go down in history. A rare chance to see the best of them is presented right now: do not miss it.

The time of work “Photobiennale” from 12 to 22 hours, tickets for 400 rubles.
