Comprehensive overview of Mikhailov’s complex and varied oeuvre opens at Sprovieri


LONDON.- Sprovieri presents Triptychs, the gallery’s second solo exhibition by world-renowned photographer Boris Mikhailov. Constituting a comprehensive overview of Mikhailov’s complex and varied oeuvre, the photographs selected for this exhibition come from ten different series, spanning a period of fifty years. Since the mid 1960s, Boris Mikhailov has explored photography’s full range of possibilities and produced an uncompromising yet ironically humorous portrait of his close surroundings. His tireless investigations into photographic techniques and stylistic means, as well as his frequent alternation between conceptual and documentary work have contributed to make Mikhailov one of the most influential photographers living today. This exhibition will showcase works from the series Yesterday’s Sandwich (late 1960s – late 1970s), Luriki (1971-85), Salt Lake (1996), I am not I (1992), If I were a German
