Our upcoming sale in London is the first collection of its kind to be offered on the international auction market. Representing various key trends in photography in the last few decades of the Soviet Union, as well as through the turbulence and stagnation characteristic of the perestroika period, the selection has a wide and comprehensive scope. From social documentary photography to works with a post-modernist aesthetic that reflects the influence of the avant-garde (in which Russians played a key role), the auction will also include first-rate examples of important Baltic photographers.
