25 Russia of Gippenreiter

Russia of Gippenreiter

Posted on January 4, 2010 by team




It’s damn hard to interview Gippenreiter. Torture. A couple of words in a minute. Each hits the mark, sounds like he drives a pile. It’s probably the only person who can tell not more than five words at the opening of his own exhibition: “Hm, perhaps I have nothing to say”… And get an ovation because his photos say everything instead of him.






Day and night he can wait for photogenic snowstorm to take Kizhi; keeping watch over a necessary mode light for a solid week to open the shutter of his “box” for the required half a second.
