The Art of Foto Project was founded at the beginning of 2011. The
idea behind it is to preserve Russia’s photographic heritage and, at
the same time, to support contemporary analogue photography, and to
help it 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 by such
well-known masters as Valery Plotnikov, Boris Smelov, Alexander
Kitaev, 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 sure 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 with the aim of creating a
positive image of traditional and contemporary Russian photography
among connoisseurs and experts throughout the world.
