Beau­ti­ful and Dif­fer­ent

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - CULTURE AND ARTS -

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.
