A photo exhibition of Andrey Glazkov "Baku streets" opened at Nur Art House Gallery on October 19.
Through his work, the photographer presents his view on the City of Winds.
The exhibition features more than 30 works of the Russian photographer, Trend Life reported.
Addressing the event, the project curator Vadim Mansurov spoke about the creative activity of Andrey Glazkov, who was born in Pyatigorsk, but has been living and working in Los Angeles for many years.
His works are characterized by fragmentation and extraordinary focus. The works of the photographer have repeatedly won at various international competitions.
Photographer has traveled to many countries in search of inspiration and images. At the beginning of summer, he arrived in Baku and visited Azerbaijan and visited various parts of the city.
Andrey Glazkov walked many kilometers to take these photographs.
This is how his collection of photographs, dedicated to Azerbaijan, appeared. By the way, one of the works has already been published in the prestigious network Leica photo gallery.
Director of NUR ART House gallery, chairman of the Azerbaijan Carpet makers, professor at the Azerbaijan State University of Culture and Arts, honored cultural worker Royq Tagiyeva noted the unique view of the photographer.
"I don’t ask people to pose for me on the street. All shots should be spontaneous," said Glazkov.
"If I shoot people, it’s more than just a face. This is a situation. This is a story. This is a moment, and a person is part of it, but not the only participant in the frame," the photographer said.
"Three years ago I first came to this city, it sunk into my soul so much that I fell in love with it at first sight. Then I decided that I would definitely return to this city and take a series of photos," he said.
The Russian photographer has gathered a large number of photos that he plan to combine into one book called "Baku - the City of Two Worlds".
