Dmitry Vyshemirsky is a resident of Kaliningrad. Until the end of World War II it was a city of East Prussia named Kenigsberg. Kaliningrad Region is a cultural landscape which emerged in Europe from a conflicting fusion of German and Russian cultures. The German heritage and today’s reality of his native city is the major focus of the art of Vyshemirsky.
The author attempts to expand the boundaries of traditional genres of photography. He is striving to express by means of the picture the methods he developed himself, to apply a single style throughout the images he has captured, to bring purely photographic and fine art features intimately into synthesis, and – remaining a photographer – to fill up his photographs with a wide range of painting styles.
Photo-documentary project “Post-“ includes colour slides produced exclusively in the Kaliningrad region, during 2004-2006. All photographs were taken using a tripod at a natural eye level without angle, using one camera and one type of film. Having applied this strict method of taking pictures, the author succeeded in scrutinizing everyday life. Balancing on the thin line of trivia, he managed to see a lot of interesting things in this common and ordinary life, and yet created a meditative, philosophical and poetic image of the land in which he lives.
We are open: Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
