Light and Shadow
Russian National Centre of Photography, Photography, Saint-Petersburg, Russia
Wednesday April 25, 2012 - Sunday May 27, 2012 - Event ended.
The exhibition of well know German photographer Barbara Klemm takes place at ROSPHOTO within the official program of the German Week in St.-Petersburg. Most of the photographs on display were made for Frankfurter Allgemeime Zeitung which Barbara Klemm has collaborated with for a long time.
These images are valuable not only for their certain artistic quality, but also for their historical significance. Possessing the talents most important for a press photographer, to be in the right place at the right time, and to catch the moment that later becomes the icon of an epoch, Klemm illustrates with her photographs the history of Germany from 1960s until now.
