Russian & Soviet photographs | May 21, 2015

On 21 May 2015 PIASA will stage their second auction of Russian & Soviet
Photography, offering a panorama of the prolific creativity of photographers
who bore witness to a past that united Slav and Oriental culture.

“Russia is rightly considered one of the richest nations in terms of photography
– whether for documentary images or art photography. After a long absence
from international events, Russian and Soviet photography has staged a major
comeback in the artworld over recent years. PIASA’s sale reflects this.

Russians were photography enthusiasts from the outset. By 1860 there were
already a number of studios in St Petersburg, like those of Sergey Levitsky and
the Scottish-born William Carrick. Photographers responded to the demands
of the Russian public by producing albums devoted to the distant, little-known
territories of their vast land – especially those lying beyond the Caucasus, a
natural barrier between the West and the Orient. Works like the album on
Georgian military highways, or Dmitri Ermakov’s studies of Caucasian ethnic
groups, composed an ode to the vertiginous dialogue between the long ribbon of
the Volga and the almost impenetrable mountains rising beyond.
