XX century”, presented by the Russian Ethnographic Museum is open at the Tashkent House of Photography of the Academy of Arts of Uzbekistan.
Photo exhibition, presented by the Russian Ethnographic Museum, introduces visitors to the life of the peoples of Russia and Central Asia of end XIX and early XX centuries.
For example, a photo called "Market Day in the street near the Sherdor Madrassah" was made by photographer S. Dudin in 1902. This photo is about the life of our ancestors in ancient Samarkand. The history is embodied in more than eighty works, among which a special attention is drawn to the photographs of D.Yermakov "Spinning of a thread", V.Mashechkin "Grandmother with a daughter and granddaughter", I.Abramov "Before Harvesting".
"The exhibition attracts with its historical truthfulness about the life of that period," says artist Rakhimjon Rizomuhamedov. - Over time, the quality of color photographs is lost, and black and white are preserved for many years. Here and in the submitted photos, which are stored more than a hundred years, the image has not changed.
"We are pleased to have the opportunity to demonstrate historical photographs stored in the museum's collection," says Olga Ganicheva, an employee of the Russian Ethnographic Museum. - Such cultural ties bring our peoples together. This is my first visit to Uzbekistan. I liked nature, national traditions of ancient and modern Tashkent. I try to capture them in photos as much as possible.
