Albert Watson. Dreaming. Pirelli Calendar 2019
As part of the XI Moscow International Biennale ‘Fashion and Style in Photography-2019’ the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow presents Albert Watson latest project ‘Dreaming. Pirelli Calendar 2019’. For this year’s Pirelli Calendar, the celebrated Scottish photographer Albert Watson has created a series of vignettes centering on the dreams and aspirations of four successful and talented women - Julia Garner, Gigi Hadid, Laetitia Casta and Misty Copeland. Each ‘little movie’ shows the characters at significant crossroads in their lives. The result is 40 beautiful and cinematic images taken on location in Miami and New York all on the theme of ‘Dreaming’. The photographs, for the 46th edition of the iconic Calendar, were shot in colour and black and white using the cinematic 16:9 format, inspired by Albert Watson’s passion for the art of film. Until 12.05.19.

Compulsion. Alex Prager
Alex Prager is a Los Angeles based filmmaker and photographer. Her work consists of elaborately staged scenes that draw inspiration from a wide range of influences and references, including Hollywood cinema, experimental films, popular culture, and street photography. Her familiar yet uncanny imagery depicts worlds that synthesize fiction and reality. The highly choreographed nature of her photographs and films embody a visual vocabulary and style that has become uniquely her own. Beyond the bright and attractive façade of Prager’s imagery is a world full of emotion, drama and psychologically rich subjects. Her hyper-stylized and layered compositions, like those reminiscent of Diane Arbus and William Eggleston, exist in a space where there is no clear boundary between fact and fiction as well as superficiality and depth. In order to create a ‘living picture’ Prager carefully constructs the décor to emulate familiar places — streets, beaches, airports, and fills them with an onslaught of carefully crafted characters that are immersed in their own internal dialogue. The early work of the artist has been described as a snapshot of a ‘moving image’, deeply cinematic it’s no surprise that the work has sub-sequentially and seamlessly transitioned into films. Until 12.05.19.

On the Other Side of Reality. Erik Johansson
The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography is presenting the work of the young Swedish photographer Erik Johansson, known for his staged surreal landscapes. Each of his works consists of fragments of many images, carefully processed and cleverly combined in a graphics editor. Johansson boldly invades images with manipulation, constructing fantasy scenes and expanding the boundaries of human perception. Erik does not capture a moment, but realizes his fantasies, using the camera and fully constructing places and situations.Combining real-life objects in the frame, he seeks to maximize the realism of the image, so that his fantasy worlds seem genuine. "No one can say that it doesn't look realistic if I really captured it all on camera," he comments, defining his style as "photorealistic surrealism". Until 12.05.2019.
