Pastoral / Moscow Suburbs

@ Gronsky, Alexander



In Pastoral / Moscow Suburbs, Alexander Gronsky explores the outer limits of the city of Moscow, in places where the bedroom communities border on the countryside and the forest.
This is a great series; at the same time a document on urbanism, a portrait of a population, and a chronicle of the life in the far out low-income suburbia of our western societies' larger cities.
The artist chooses a remote, contemplative stance, and brings together in his photographs the trees, the concrete and the inhabitants in very expressive landscapes / cityscapes that have you stop on every single image.

A really beautiful and powerful series, that won an "Aperture Portfolio Award" in 2009, and also a 3rd prize in the "Daily Life" category of the "World Press Photo" in 2012 for one of the images.
