War is for men. Her faithful companions - death, fear, destruction, but, nevertheless, she is not devoid of romanticism. The heroes of this exhibition are young soldiers, they are fearless, strong and good-looking, which makes it even sadder to look at these pictures.
The project is a series of forty photographs of the reconstruction of events and twenty-three unique photos from the scene of events dedicated to the participation of Soviet troops in the war in Afghanistan.
The work of Alexandra Blaginina is a tribute to the living and fallen soldiers-internationalists, who took part in the largest armed conflict of the Soviet Union in the period after the end of the Great Patriotic War.
The photographs show realistic battle scenes piercing the portraits of the heroes who participated in this cruel and merciless war, as well as picturesque, picturesque pictures from the life of the East.
The photographs reflect the grinding pain of the military confrontation, which directly affected our Fatherland. Over a decade, over half a million Soviet citizens have passed through the crucible of the Afghan war. Between 1979 and 1989, Soviet troops lost more than 15,000 people.
The exhibition was implemented with the support of the Russian Union of Afghan Veterans, with the organizational support of the head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov, as well as the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Crimea.
The shooting process was organized on the territory of the Crimea, in the districts of Simferopol and Bakhchisaray, with the participation of the "Thunder" club of reconstructors.
In 2017, the photo exhibition was held in Simferopol, at the State Academic Music Theater of the Republic of Crimea, on the Day of Remembrance of Russians who performed their official duties outside the Fatherland. Also in the summer of 2017 the exhibition opened in the House of the Government of the Saratov region and a little later at the office of Rosgvardia in the Saratov region. In early February 2018 the exhibition was held at the Federation Council and Crocus City Hall in the framework of events timed to the 29th anniversary of the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan.
Entrance to the exhibition is free!
