Winners of the Andrei Stenin Photo Contest to Be Exhibited at the Museum of Moscow


MOSCOW, August 25 (RossiyaSegodnya press service) - The Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest, established by the RossiyaSegodnya International Information Agency, will launch an exhibition of its prizewinning entries at the Museum of Moscow (2 Zubovsky Boulevard) on September 2. On display will be over 200 works by young photographers from various parts of the world, depicting life in mega cities and provincial towns, religious and ethnic festivals, political events, sports victories and daily life. The exhibition will run through September 13, 2015.


The project is entitled So That You Know. For Andrei Stenin, a well-known photojournalist who was killed in August 2014 while carrying out his professional duties, these words that he used to repeat constitute the essence of photojournalism, namely bringing truth to people. A separate section of the exhibition will feature Stenins own works: over 150 photographs he made in Ukraine, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Turkey, Libya and Kyrgyzstan from 2010-2014. Supplemented by comments from his diaries and his posts on social networks, they are photo chronicles of life in hot points.


The works displayed at the " So That You Know" exhibition reveal an interesting photographic vision of the topics chosen by the photographers and the means of expression they used. We hope that next year the Andrei Stenin International Press Photo Contest, its main aim being to support young photographers in their bid to hone their professional mastership, will discover more and more new names, Alexander Shtol, director of RossiyaSegodnyas Photo Information Directorate, said about the upcoming exhibition.
