Lumière Instantanée - Andréï Tarkovski"La photographie à développement instantané accompagne Andréï Tarkovski dans la dernière partie de son oeuvre : en Russie lorsqu'il mûrit la décision de quitter pour toujours sa patrie, et en Italie, lorsqu'il tourne avec Tonino Guerra Temps de voyage et Nostalghia, en cherchant un lieu où se construire une demeure rien que pour lui, une maison pouvant accueillir non seulement sa femme Larissa, en exil avec lui, mais aussi son fils Andreï et son chien Dak, restés douloureusement loin, otages du pouvoir soviétique. Ces images en couleur sont encore plus petites que celles en noir et blanc que renferme l'agenda des souvenirs ; mais c'est précisément de cette petite dimension, à la limite extrême de la vi...
Instant Light: Tarkovsky Polaroidsde Tonino Guerra (Préface), Giovanni Chiaramonte (Sous la direction de), Andrey A. Tarkovsky (Sous la direction de)
The Russian Andrey Tarkovsky (1932-1986) is one of the greatest directors in film history. Here Italian photographer Chiaramonte and Tarkovsky's son mount a selection of color Polaroids the filmmaker took from 1979 to 1984 of his home, family, and friends in Russia and of places he visited in Italy. His father, Arseny, was a distinguished poet, and judging from the notebook extracts accompanying the pictures, Tarkovsky was no mean poet himself. Like his father, he intuited a holy eternity.

12 Russian Winters, 12 Baltic Springs at The White Space Gallery
Twelve years ago Anya Stonelake arrived in London and started White Space Gallery. In that time she has missed twelve Russian winters in her beloved St Petersburg and twelve Baltic springs but it is our good fortune that we have not. Thanks to Anya we have discovered the freshness of the New Artists and Timur Novikov from St Petersburg and the poetry of unknown Baltic photographers. Her acute sense of both what has happened and what is happening has introduced the British public to new artists and photographers from 21st century Russia and Lithuania. She has also curated the work of the Portuguese photographer Jose Pedro Cortes and our own Martin Parr.
