“A landscape should be a portrait. If it is not quite similar to nature, then what is in it?" These words of the young artist from the “Walk to the Academy of Arts” by the Russian poet Konstantin Batiushkov served as an impetus to the discourse on the borders of graphic genres and on the borders of the abstract and figurative, the figure and the background.
In an environment in which it is difficult to separate nature from human intervention, a landscape can be that image which appeals to the nature of visual perception as such. In these photo shots, a young photographer from Moscow Mikhail Grebenshchikov tried to reach the paysage vision, and assemble complex physiognomy of everyday urban environments with natural, man-made and human components.
