And Quiet Flows the Volga

The Noga Creative Union presents an exhibition of photographs by Kazan documentary photographer Evgene Kanaev from the cycle about ‘The Quiet Course of the Volga…’

The title of the project is due to the local history approach to shooting timeless storylines in the author’s small homeland: its inhabitants in the countryside and village life, in the urban environment and pastoral perspective of endless landscapes. At first glance, the selection of photographs is determined by geographical principle. However, it is also a story about people in their most intimate images and in the manifestations of those qualities that we call genuine or authentic — in a word, real. This is the essence of Kanayev’s artistic documentation, where unhurried examination of the photographs of the series, from the first to the last frame, imperceptibly immerses us in the atmosphere of a quiet and serene existence in the territory adjacent to the middle reaches of the Volga River for more than 40 years.
