The exposition dedicated to the celebration of the 68th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, combines black-and-white portraits of Russian veterans. ‘In Europe, the Victory Day is not the same as in Russia. And the difference is not only that we celebrate on May 8, and you’re the 9th. In the world it is a holiday of the Victory. In Russia, it is also a day of Veterans’ says James Hill. In 2006, on May 9, when the veterans gathered at the celebration of Victory Day in Gorky Park in Moscow James Hill I have decided to make it an improvised photo studio in the open and shoot a few portraits of women – veterans, because to them to fight more than one million front in World War II. Despite the initial desire to complete the project in the same year and confine women’s portraits, James returned to Gorky Park in 2007, then in the 2008th and 2009th and continued his series of shots, but shooting is not only veterans of women, but also veterans – men. Each of them gave a snapshot photographer, in gratitude for the fact that they agreed to pose in front of his camera. They rightly considered to be heroes in Russian society, says James Hill. But I did not try to take them in heroic poses. I just wanted to show them to themselves as ordinary people who happened to live in extraordinary times: men and women who lived and fought during the most turbulent years of the last century, who live in these recollections so far. I am aware that time is running out and there will be less and less every year. It seemed that I was the last opportunity to capture the faces of veterans until they are gone away from us, depriving Russia of its most obvious link with the Second World & hellip ,.
