Erarta - the largest private museum of contemporary art in St. Petersburg, has opened an exhibition “Centre de gravité. The power of gravity,” which represents a collection of photographs by eminent photographers from Russia, France, United States and Canada. Together the artists created a piercingly sincere image of modern-day Russia. Each photograph is followed by a short commentary explaining a way the picture was created or artist connection with heroes portrayed on the photo. We’ve collected the brightest pictures illustrating the everyday life of Murmansk, Altai region and Chechnya residents.
