A person of a unique biography, Nikolai Ivanovich Drachinsky made a truly outstanding contribution to the development of national photography. The focus of the exhibition at the Museum of Moscow is the legacy of his artistic and technological experiments with photographic film and paper in the mid-1970s.
Multicontour - the technique created by him for obtaining a multilayer color photographic image. Thanks to her, Drachinsky received effects, widely used today by photo artists and designers, long before the advent of digital photo editors. Color "multi-contours" were naturally involved in the Moscow underground culture of the 1970s. They combined the festivity of flowers, carnival, against gray weekdays, with ironic collages of subjects, in which a ballerina makes a flight over the pediment of the Bolshoi Theater, and all the Moscow architectural monuments are lined up in a dance. Moscow was the main theme of photographic experiments and the beloved city of Nikolai Drychansky, who traveled the whole world as a photojournalist and curator.
The technique of the multi-circuit attracts and captivates with a multiplicity of image and color options. For photographers of the "multi-contour" of Drachynsky it is an extension of the boundaries of photography. For viewers - a meeting with Moscow in a new guise due to the unique author’s technique and its artistic capabilities.
Nikolai Ivanovich Drachynskyi was a famous photojournalist in the 1950s-1960s and worked in the leading editions of the USSR-the newspapers Komsomolskaya Pravda, Izvestia, and Ogonyok. Since the mid-1960s as a curator, he embodied his dream and created an exhibition "The USSR is a country and people in artistic photographs." With the dramaturgy of the curatorial scenario, she united about 2000 photographs of more than 500 leading photographers of the USSR in 17 thematic sections. The exhibition was first shown in the USA in 1970, then in the Moscow Manezh and until 1976 it visited more than 100 countries of the world. In the mid-1970s, Nikolay Drachinsky actively experimented with the artistic and technological side of photography.
Opening of the exhibition: August 16 at 19.00. The entrance to the opening is free.
Within the framework of the exhibition on August 23, at 18.00, a meeting with the curators of the exhibition Irina Chmyreva and Alla Vakhromeeva will be held, dedicated to photographic experiments of the hero of the exhibition Nikolay Drychansky. Free admission.
