City of Shadows

Photographs by Alexey Titarenko.
Art Theme, In English and, 2001. In Russia. 36 pp., 26 black-and-white illustrations, 8½x8½".

Born to parents of the Soviet academic intelligentsia, which implies relative prosperity during the years of the Cold War, Titarenko began exhibiting photographs as a member of the Leningrad Zerkalo Club at the young age of sixteen. His attention to form shines through in these atmospheric photographs where bundled crowds, hustling here and there, are reduced to massive, stunning blurs. In her thoughtful essay, Irina Tchmyreva writes, "St. Petersburg demands to be loved with the compassion of Dostoyevsky's 'little people,' for whom feeling is both a form of cleansing and a way of penetrating the mystery and spirit of this city composed of evaporations from the river's bog-lands." Alexey Titarenko's work is available through photo-eye Gallery.
