Alexey Loginov
"Photography and Literature"


The WINZAVOD Center for Contemporary Art continues the educational program within the framework of the exhibition Best of Russia'16 ("The Best Photos of Russia-2016") on the interaction of photography with various types of art and spheres of life. The next meeting will take place on March 15 at 19:00, photo historian, professor of the Russian State University for the Humanities Alexey Loginov giving a lecture on "Photography and Literature".

Modern ideas about photography not only warn against the analogy between photography and text, but also in many respects contrast them to each other. At the same time, this does not mean that photography and text can not interact with each other or exert influence on each other. Within the framework of the lecture it is proposed to consider various variants of the corresponding interactions: the creation of photographic portraits of famous writers; the illustration of literary works by means of photography; visual refutation of a textual statement using a photographic image; the creation of a photographic project on the basis of a text work, etc. The noted types of interactions will be analyzed on the examples of photographic materials of the XIX - early XXI centuries.
