The Art of Foto Project was founded at the beginning of 2011. The idea behind the gallery is to preserve Russia’s photographic heritage and, at the same time, to support contemporary analogue photography, as well as to help it to develop, both artistically and technologically.
The Art of Foto Gallery is a collection of photographs that have historical and artistic value. At the moment, we have works produced by well-known masters such as Valery Plotnikov, Boris Smelov, John Sexton, Leonid Bogdanov, Valentin Samarin, John Wimberly, Robert Doisneau and others.
The primary goal of the gallery is to promote talented Russian photographers, both at home and abroad. We actively support photographers in St. Petersburg and Moscow whose works are likely to be added to the artistic heritage of Russia. Members of the Art of Foto Artists’ Union organize annual exhibitions of hand printed black and white photographs in Russia and Europe aiming at creating a positive image of traditional and contemporary Russian photography among connoisseurs and experts worlwide.
