One hundred years ago this fall, the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution shook the world, changing the course of history and the fate of photography in Russia. Soviet photographers were handed the monumental task of creating a new mythology for the people of Russia, founded on striking visual symbols of collective progress, patriotism, and self-sacrifice. The result was a golden age of Russian photography in the 1920's and 1930's. Photos of the most famous photographers of the time are shown at the exhibition, including: Boris Iganatovich, Arkady Shaikhet, Alexander Rodechencko abd Abram Shterenberg.
