Photo exhibit on Russian opposition premieres in New York

Garry Kasparov

Newsweek writes about today’s world premiere of “Russian Visionaries. Into the Light,” a photography exhibit showcasing Russian opposition leaders at the 25CPW Gallery at 25 Central Park West in Manhattan. The show runs from Nov. 29 until Dec. 12 and is sponsored by the Institute of Modern Russia, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing democracy, civil society and the rule of law.

With the Duma election just days away, “Russian Visionaries” introduces the nascent but growing Russian opposition movement to the American public in a stark and intimate way. Fifty-three austere black and white portraits taken by renowned photographer Kirill Nikitenko show the gripping gaze of prominent writers, actors, politicians and activists, brought together for this unique exhibit by Elena Khodorkovskaya, curator and former wife of political prisoner Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
