Alexey Titarenko : “St. Petersburg” Series (Photography)

“Titarenko presents the city as mystical and eerie, a reflection of the many tragedies that occurred there throughout the 20th century. His key inspiration is not contemporary photographic practice, but rather music, and particularly that of Shostakovich. His black-and-white pictures allow for details that situate the scene in time and place. Many photographers have employed “blur”, but Titarenko applies it to street photography, transforming straight reportage into haunting poetry.” Barbara Pollack
