At the edge of Moscow – Alexander Gronsky

Alexander Gronsky was born in Tallinn, Estonia in 1980 and began working as a press photographer in 1998. He gradually moved from editorial photography to working on personal documentary projects focusing on the contemporary Russian landscape.

Gronsky explores the ambiguity of the spaces that are on the border between large towns and rural areas. I particularly like the series The Edge, set in Moscow, with in the background, the Soviet apartment blocks, the geometric shapes of objects in the foreground and the lights of the typical Russian cold days.

His work has been presented in solo exhibitions in Moscow, Paris, New York, Amsterdam, Bogota, and Levallois, France, as well as in group exhibitions. He was a participant in the 2003 World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass.
