William Broomfield. 30 years in Russia
The USA Embassy and the Museum of Architecture named after A.V. Schusev present an exhibition "Russian North. Evidence by William Broomfield". A professor of Slavonic studies at Tulane University in New Orleans, the author of several books devoted to Russian architecture, William Broomfield spent 6 years in Russia in total since his first visit to this country in the summer of 1970. His remarkable work resulted in over 90 thousand photos of architectural monuments and scenery taken in different parts of Russia from Karelia and Murmansk region to Vladivostok. The major part of this collection is kept at the National Gallery of Art in Washington. The exhibition at the Museum of Architecture consists of 6 sections: Kizhma, Vologda and its environments, Kizhi, Velikij Novgorod , Kargopolie and Solovki. Academically rigorous and detached, these black-and-white photos, according to the author, are not just a statement, but are also pieces of poetry and art and a protest against the inexcusable negligence of architectural masterpieces which fall into decay year after year.
