Yalta 1945 Photography Competition: Winners’ Exhibition

To coincide with our current Yalta 1945 exhibition, the Ben Uri Gallery invited the public to send in their photographs inspired by the themes of INFLUENCE, DIVISION and UNITY which are prevalent in the exhibition.
These are themes resonate as much today as they did when Komar and Melamid created Yalta 1945, and the selected winners have poignantly captured how they are relevant in society today.

    This image is part of a photographic series I created in the weeks leading up to ‘Victory Day’ (Den’ pobedy) in St. Petersburg, Russia. It explores contrasts between this national holiday’s rehearsed parades and the spontaneous, unceremonious, and uncoordinated moments of the street. I think the image evokes a subtle sense of division: a distance between human beings divided not by physical barriers, but by the positions they occupy in society.
