Gueorgui Pinkhassov has a singular vision – his richly coloured, multi-layered photographs are distinct microcosms that embrace the visual complexity of contemporary life. He is an artist working with photography and within Magnum’s documentary tradition. The purity of his approach, a visual stream of consciousness inspired both by his early mentor, the great Russian film director Andrei Tarkovski, and Magnum’s founder Henri Cartier-Bresson, has led fellow Magnum photographers to herald him a genius of the medium. For this, Gueorgui Pinkhassov’s first commercial exhibition in London, Magnum presents a career overview of key colour works from the early 1990s to the present day.
