The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography presents the first complete retrospective of the Soviet photography classic Yakov Khalip. The exhibition is based on the Khalip family archive, collection of The Lumiere Center and private collections.
Retrospective exhibition of Yakov Khalip (1908-1980) gives an insight into the evolution of soviet photography - from the avant-garde 1920s to the stagnant 1970s - through the body of work of one great photographer.
Archive of the Khalip family reveals unique artefacts introducing the epoch: documents of the Arctic expedition; original expedition maps; trip permits and assignments; postcards sets of the 1930s; rare books and booklets featuring Khalip’s work; handmade thematic photo albums, created by the photographer and many more.
Presentation of the first photo book of Yakov Khalip and extensive lecture programme are planned within the framework of the exhibition. The exhibition is made in collaboration with the project Gazprom Neft – Arctic Time.
