Photography by Richard Pare
Yesterday I popped along to the Royal Academy of Art for the exhibition that ended there today, Building the Revolution: Soviet Art and Architecture 1915-1935. A really nice mix of hand drawn architectural concept work, constructivist design (concepts for propaganda stations etc) and soviet art, but the star of the show was Richard Pare’s photography, which lined the outside wall of the exhibition. Some weren’t so great (to my eye), but the ones that were were stunning.
Richard Pare’s an English photographer who seems to have made capturing degrading soviet architecture (and consequently society to a point) his life’s work. I love this stuff.
