Photographer Lev Borodulin organises exhibition in Moscow

The Moscow Photography House has organised a personal retrospection of Lev Borodulin to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the legendary Soviet photographer.

The exhibition within the framework of the programme, "Classics of the Russian Photography", was prepared with the help of the Russian and Israeli Embassies. Lev Borodulin has been living in the Middle East for over 30 years. He left the USSR as early as in 1972, at the peak of his fame. By that time the master had got a golden Olympic medal for his achievements in sport photography /Munich, 1966/, while in 1964 the English Daily, "Photography Year Book", called Borodulin "a star of the world photography".

Being a sport photo correspondent, he could travel around the world quite freely even during the climax of the Cold War. During his 15 years of work for the Soviet Ogonyok magazine, making photos at the Olympic games and World Championships, Borodulin visited a great number of countries. In the 1960s his camera caught images of different people enigmatic for a Soviet man, such as hippies and farmers, tropic inhabitants /"My friend from Africa"/ and European citizens /"Father from Geneva", "A change. Tony Blair's Generation."/ and even casino gamblers.

The disease prevented the hero of the occasion from coming to the exhibition, but still, he has arrived in Moscow for his birthday, representatives of the Moscow Photography House said. He has brought a small part of his extensive collection made on the land of promise. During the repatriation years Borodulin has become one of the most famous Israeli photo masters and is currently involved in advertising and tourism.

The Basmanny Court of Moscow arrested Michael Calvey, the founder of Baring Vostok investment fund, on allegations of embezzling 2.5 billion rubles from Vostochny Bank. Calvey will be held in custody until April 13
