Overview participating exhibitions
Moscow, with its million inhabitants, always seems to be balanced on the edge of break down. Traffic jams, overfull metros, aggressive advertising, endless streams of people – there is no escape. But there is also lots of hidden loneliness. Ivan Mikhaylov photographed the many young people who came to Moscow from the provinces. Some are in their element, others become overwhelmed. What do they want from this city? What are their dreams, and how do they feel?
Ivan Mikhaylov (Soviet Union, 1981) took a teaching certificate in the fine arts and drawing from the state university of Chuvash. After that he worked as a commercial photographer for a design studio. In 2006 he joined the Russian Art Photographers Union. In the same year he won the first prize in the Young Russian Photographers competition.
