Photo from the "Superimposition" series (late 60s - early 70s) by Boris Mikhailov, c-print
Boris Mikhailov (1938, Kharkov, Ukraine), is considered one of the most significant contemporary photographers. Mikhailov has the ability to discover the unusual where others see nothing. His working method is conceptual and social-documentary. His photographs are regarded as historical documents, means of creating works of art, self-portraits, and political comments.
An exhibition comprised of 32 works, including large-format ones, from the Superimposition series, opens June 30 at Merano Arte in Merano, Italy.
