"GREAT PHOTO PREMIERE" will present Samat and "Symphony of Light" in the halls of the New Tretyakov Gallery.
From August 20 to October 5, 2022, the BIG PHOTO PREMIERA will present an exhibition of works by the Russian photo artist Samat called "Symphony of Light" in the halls of the New Tretyakov Gallery. The photographer shoots landscapes, nature, mainly the Far East and the Russian North. To get to the most remote corners, he goes on a trip on a ZIL with a kung wagon, in which he lives in the middle of the taiga. In this house on wheels, he traveled across Russia for more than one thousand kilometers.
"GREAT PHOTO PREMIERA" is the only systematic non-commercial project in Russia for organizing museum-level exhibitions that form the image of modern photographic culture in Russia. The aim of the project is to support modern Russian photography, to introduce the wide Russian audience to iconic projects and the names of talented authors of Russian creative photography.
Samat, without exaggeration, is the star of modern photography. The main task that the artist sets himself is to show the world as it is. As a rule, the viewer sees a digital photo already processed, all colors are “pulled out”, “twisted” for greater effect. Classical photographers have always shown "true" colors and shades. In this sense, Samat is the last samurai, the carrier and popularizer of classical analog photography, the philosophy of digital “non-interference” in the creative interaction between the Artist and the Creator. It can be said that it acts as a guide to the world of Divine beauty and gives the tired city dweller the opportunity to enjoy the true beauty of Nature without digital intermediaries and surrogates.
“Perhaps the main feeling that guides me in creating a work is the feeling of color, color form, texture. My task is to convey to the viewer as accurately as possible the music of color created by Nature and heard by me in the most distant and beautiful secluded places of our earth,” says Samat.
To do this, the photographer uses a very time-consuming manual printing technology on the unique Sibachrome paper. This paper is no longer produced today, its production was stopped several decades ago, and the printing process itself is very harmful and takes a lot of time.
“There are still a couple of authors working in the Sibachrome technique left in the world. The color symphonies of Nature can also be played on ordinary instruments, but I prefer Stradivarius,” emphasizes Samat.
Today, almost every mobile phone is equipped with a camera, but can everyone become an artist? We hope that the public will be able to find out the answer to this question at the exhibition of Samat’s works "Symphony of Light". Entrance to the exhibition is free. Age limit 0+.
