In his work, Bronnikov always follows the advice that the master of domestic photography Vadim Gippenreiter gave him at one time - to tell the story in one frame, when one picture becomes an entire book for the viewer. Being an adherent of a large format and possessing a phenomenal ability to feel and convey the uniqueness of an object, the artist creates canvases of grand scale, blurring the line between reality and photography.
One of the landmarks of Andrei Bronnikov’s multifaceted work is a project to create an album of archaeological finds “Treasures of the Valley of the Kings of Tuva”, commissioned by the Kuzhuget Shoigu Cultural Foundation.
