Sergey Sapozhnikov

My grandmother can make better photographs. Sergey Sapozhnikov's appearance on the Moscow art scene has been accompanied by the same kind of electricity that flows through his work. The dynamic whirlwinds of his photography radiate an energy that could not, it would seem, be of worldly provenance, but rather from some impossible power source. This book features the artist's major series--photographs made in different places at different times. Among them are Withdrawal, Birthday, and My grandmother can make better photographs, and many others. Altogether these works testify to the evolution in Sapozhnikov's career, focusing on his very personal style and approach to reality.
