Contemporary Russian Photography is an extensive representation of the evolution of creative photography in Russia from the Khrushchev period of the late 1950's through the wild experimentalism of Perestroika and its aftermath in the 1990s to the work of young Russian photographers today. The presentation of Russian photography shows the remarkable breadth of the photographic arts in Russia over the past 56 years.
