The exhibition introduces oeuvre of Daniel Biskup - one of the leading German photographers, who works in the genre of report and portrait photography. The exhibition includes works created in St. Petersburg in 1993-2003. The city is seen through the eyes of the photographer. It is many-sided and full of contrasts; it is the city of front facades and dark yards; the city of dwellers of communal flats and of "golden youth". The artist, as an independent observer, has caught such moments in the life of St. Petersburg that show contradictory relationship between the city and its citizens.
