Beautiful and Different
Superb photos from the picturesque streets of two capital cities, Tashkent and Paris, can be seen at the exhibition of photo artist Anna Chudinova, which opened in the French Alliance in the capital of Uzbekistan. The exhibition entitled ‘Tashkent-Paris’ displays more than 40 photographs, including genre portraits, art photos and works in reportage style.
Paris is the city of lights. It is depicted in black and white, but at the same time so real and vivid. Here visitors can meet an organgrinder, merrily singing in the noisy city center, the famous Moulin Rouge Theater with crowded streets around, the majestic Basilique of Sacre Coeur on Montmartre and, of course, the Eiffel Tower.
“In the beginning it was planned to show only Tashkent series, the city in which I was born and grew up. Then, by the will of fate, I visited Paris. The exhibition presents more genre scenes, portraits from Uzbekistan, and Paris – it’s street photos, because I really love to shoot on the street, see life as it is, to catch live interesting moments,” says the author of the exhibition.
Tashkent is depicted in bright colors. Women, preparing sumalak, children, playing in the streets of the mahalla, all kinds of landscapes and objects of applied art - all this was captured by the camera of Anna Chudinova. Paris and Tashkent are very different cities, the capitals representing the West and the East, but both with a rich history. And what unites them? People, who are so happy and joyful, immersed in a string of their interesting destinies.
