Alexander Gronsky, Mikhail Iampolski avec Alexander Gronsky: Pastoral / Moscow Suburbs

In his photographic account Pastoral, Alexander Gronsky portrays the outskirts of Moscow: the places where humanity takes refuge to find solace far from the cities, colliding with urban expansion and frailty of nature. The space explored lives in between, suspended between the nothingness of the unknown and what stands on the other side. Gronsky is a landscape photographer with an incredible ability to capture natural scenes with an allegorical meaning: expanses and hills, spectacular lights, broad horizons. His skilful use of perspective and his ability in composition, lead the observers eye deeply into the landscape, generating a sense of astonishment for every place portrayed in photo. In the images, human presence is constant, Gronsky looks for infrequent but precious moments of relief and diversion in woody areas and open beaches, in remote corners and common meeting places. Meanwhile, he always bears in mind the proximity of the big city: glimpses of skyscrapers and industrial parks can be seen in the distance between the trees or, sometimes, surprisingly close to the people surrounded by nature. The series Pastoral has been awarded the World Press Photo 3rd place for Daily Life Stories in 2012.
