If you’ve not yet paid a visit to this photo exhibition of works by Boris Smelov, a formative genius of Russian underground photography, here’s your last chance to do so. Shooting his beloved city, Smelov imagined himself an outside observer looking for unique angles. In his work, he captured the true spirit of the city in its suddenly quiet courtyards, windswept rooftops, and deserted embankments. Over 40 photographs – some of them displayed for the first time – are there for you to enjoy.
