" In his non-stop photographs, life sketches - a biography of Moscow and the whole country for 40 years, from the early 1960s to the early 2000s.

Mikhail Dashevsky - Doctor of Technical Sciences, the largest specialist in the field of vibration protection. But in the Russian photographic environment is recognized for his enormous contribution to documentary photography. He is a lyricist, amateur, observer. In 1968, he began his career in the famous Moscow photo club Novator. In 2012, at the Houston FotoFest Biennale dedicated to contemporary Russian photography, his work was included in the Thaw section.
In November 2018, Mikhail Dashevsky turned 83 years old. This exhibition is the result of years lived for him. The exposition consists of more than 350 photographs and 7 sections: from the 1960s through the changes of the 70s-90s to the beginning of the 2000s, images of the capital from courtyards and houses of Solyanka to noisy central streets and new buildings. The author wrote small stories for photographs, turning the exhibition into a collection of short stories.
He represents the "Bresson" trend in photography with a characteristic attention to composition, a desire to focus on psychology, an interest in a person that is not famous, but at some point photographically expressive. Dashevsky’s works are fundamentally non-stop moments of life snatched from the stream of time. The photographer himself defines this style as "documentary impressionism." “I am a typical“ impressionist, ”says Dashevsky.“ If I’m not interested, I haven’t been “pricked,” I don’t shoot. That is, I’m shooting everything, but then, when I take it off, it turns out that if it’s not “pricked”, then it didn’t work. ”
Fixing great historical moments, he prefers street psychological studies, sketches of the lives of ordinary people, the breath of the city. He likes to take pictures of children and elderly people: they are in Moscow photos, in Yaroslavl, Georgian, northern, rural series.
Within the framework of the exhibition, on January 17, a meeting will be held with the exhibition’s author, photographer Mikhail Dashevsky, and on February 21, a lecture by the curator of the exhibition, Irina Chmyreva, “Photographs of Mikhail Dashevsky and Moscow Culture of the 1960-1990s”.
