New York's Museum of Modern art exhibits masterpieces of its photo collection

New York Museum of Modern Art exhibits its photo collection at the exhibition called "Looking Into Photos".

Thursday the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts opened an exposition already shown this summer at the State Hermitage Museum to commemorate St. Petersburg's 300th anniversary.

Works by various countries' classics were brought to Russia: Eugene Atget, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Andre Kertesz and many others.

The principle of chronology lies at the basis of the exposition: it opens with photos taken in the mid-19th century like "Self Portrait With Robert Adamson" by David O. Hill and "Niagara Suspension Bridge" by William England. As far as the first half of the 19th century is concerned, it will be reflected not only in the works by Jacques Henri Lartigue, Adolphe De Meyer, Nicholas Muray or Walker Evans, but also by a Russian Alexander Rodchenko, the author of "Assembling For A Demonstration" (1930).

The classical museum-like approach to the exhibit as a retro review will not hamper the idea of its authors who insist the viewer must examine each photo separately, as "a thing within itself", having passed it through his or her inner world. Precisely this motto became the headline of the project "Looking Into Photos."

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
