Moscow House of Photography

Moscow House of Photography

The Moscow House of Photography is the only Russian Museum, which has chosen the strategy of festivals and broad scale projects. Efficiency of this strategy has been proved by the International Months of Photography — “Photobiennale” and “Fashion and Style in Photography” Moscow International Festivals. Hundreds of exhibitions held in the house's own premises and in major museums and exhibition centers of Moscow have formed a critical mass of a significant cultural event. The festivals have not only been widely acclaimed by the general public and the media, they have restored the artistic and social value of the phenomenon of photography in the Russian social perception. The Russian and foreign public have been granted access to precious archives of the prominent Russian photographers: Alexander Grinberg, Max Penson, Yuri Yeremin, Anatoly Yegorov, Dimitri Baltermantz and of others. Consistent efforts in study and promotion of the artistic heritage of the Russian masters along with the publishing activities of the Moscow House of Photography contribute to strengthening of authority of the national photo art both in Russia and abroad. Due to the international projects of the Moscow House of Photography and demonstration of masterpieces of foreign photographers in Russia the Russian photography, after decades of isolation beyond the iron curtain, has been steadily entering the international artistic context.

Collection of the Moscow House of Photography:
The Moscow House of Photography maintains a large collection of old and contemporary Russian photographic masterpieces. Due to a number of objective and subjective reasons, the photographic heritage of Russia is not plentiful, and therefore the Moscow House of Photography has been consistently and persistently working on finding, collecting and storing of photo materials. No thematic or chronological limits have been applied to the museum funds. The museum collection has been steadily complemented, and as of this day it has more than 70 thousand original prints and negatives. All photographic media are represented consistently, from the ancient daguerreotypes (1850s), pherrotypes, ambrotypes, to the most advanced with digital technologies.
The Moscow House of Photography hosts the first Russian library of photographic books, having special photographic publications, Russian and foreign books on history and theory of photography, photo albums, exhibition catalogues, and referential literature. Apart from those, the library avails a large videotheque, representing materials on all the major event and projects held by the Museum, as well as films monographs on creative art of the most prominent masters of photography.
