Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Igor Moukhin (born 1961) works as an independent photographer since 1989. He started his career covering underground musicians' life in the Soviet Russia. This work developed into a more vast research of the Soviet and Post-Soviet space. His work has appeared in numerous Russian and international publications and have been exhibited at museums, festivals and galleries worldwide. Igor is reputed one of the most important contemporary Russian photographers. He is based in Moscow and besides continuing his practice as a photographer, he lectures at Rodchenko School of Photography.
Using his individual and familiar style Moukhin reconstructs and explores reality of post-soviet society in his native city Moscow. The images expose public and private life of various strata of citizens, different kinds of political, public or artistic groups and subcultures. This way, the book covers the great epoch of changes and course of life of numerous generations of Moscovites that were faced with this twenty-five years period of changes and hope.
The book also contains a very personal interview by Irina Meglinskaya with Igor Moukhin and an essay by the famous Russian modern writer Zakhar Prilepin.

'The value of Igor Moukhin's work lies in his patient accumulation of acute visual synopses of the quotidian experience of his own people during a time of crisis and opportunity.' - A.D. Coleman, Photocritic International, www.adcoleman.com

'Dear faces! Honest, fine but vain gestures! The plural Russian life turned into street ballet with banners, posters, and church bells or old women's chorus amplified with speakers which float in cars rocking you to sleep...' - Linor Goralik, Snob Magazine

'That which would annoy in others with this ordinary naivety, here in works of Mukhin it is considered as master's individuality, as subtle copy of time and place. - Igor Shevelyov, Rossijskayja Gazeta

'Igor Mukhin is like a cat, his instincts are tuned in night hunt. At the same time he wields all kinds of photographic arsenal, he can shoot separate pictures as well as photo stories where each picture could be seen as a complete work and can well live apart from the whole story.' - Georgy Rozov, Fotodelo, photographer.ru

Marvelous 20 July 2013
By Emendez - Published on Amazon.com

My Moscow is a total piece of art. The Moscow's prodigal son at his best. Moukhin's photography is not only about its characters, or about the odd situations he shots, or about the wonderful use of ambient light he has, or even about its invisibility, no, his photography is abut life, about humanity, and freedom of shooting. With a tremendous powerful artistic vision and deep understanding -with humor- of the human condition, his images are timeless, they transcend cultural barriers or ideology. The unique motion and emotion of every image he takes is breathtaking, but Moukhin's work is not just virtuosism. The magnificence of Moukhin's work lies in his liberty of shooting. His personal approach to the medium is what makes him one of the greatest artist of all time, an essential author, the true legendary zen archer of Eugen Herrigel's book Zen in the Art of Archery. On each page of this book you can smell the street, even more: life, life as it comes, with its beauty and its inherent ugliness. Highly recommendable, a must have book for everyone.

This Photo book is one of the most exciting snapshot book in our time. After Robert Frank, we had Garry Winogrand and Joel Meyerowitz... It is so wonderful to see the new work of a genius. Dedinitly Igor Moukhin got a talent to take snapshot with Leica. I love this photo book.
