Mikhail Dashevsky - Doctor of Technical Sciences, the largest specialist in the field of vibration protection.

The exposition consists of more than 350 photographs and 7 sections: from the 1960s through the changes of the 70s-90s to the early 2000s, the images of the capital from the courtyards and houses of Solyanka to the noisy central streets and new buildings. For photos, the author wrote little stories, turning the exhibition into a collection of short stories.
He represents the “Bresson” direction in photography with a characteristic attention to composition, a desire to focus on psychology, an interest in an unrecognizable person, but at some point photographically expressive. Dashevsky’s works are fundamentally non-defining moments of life snatched from the flow of time. The photographer himself defines this style as “documentary impressionism”. “I am a typical“ impressed ”, says Dashevsky,“ If I’m not interested, I’m not stung, ”I don’t take pictures. That is, I remove everything, but then, when I select, it turns out that if it didn’t "prick", then it didn’t work. ”
Fixing large historical moments, he prefers street psychological studies, sketches of the lives of ordinary people, the breath of the city. He likes to shoot children and elderly people: they are in Moscow photos, in the Yaroslavl, Georgian, northern, rural series.
