On the Road: Photography of the Soviet Empire
Works from the Semyon Fridlyand Archive
March 6 – May 4, 2008
On the Road: Photography of the Soviet Empire” features approximately 70 images drawn from a remarkable archive of works by the Soviet-era photographer Semyon Fridlyand (1906-1964). Fridlyand built his career documenting the emergence of Soviet society and was a photo editor for Ogonyok (the Soviet Union’s version of Life magazine) . His archive is now housed at the University of Denver, which is mounting the first major exhibition dedicated to his work.
“On the Road” is supported through the generosity of Russ and Cathy Dalbey and the Dalbey Educational Institute. This exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog containing more than 60 B&W and color images.
