Gueorgui Pinkhassov is known for his vivid art-reportage, which elevates the everyday to the extraordinary. His richly colored images are absorbing, complex and poetic—sometimes bordering on an abstraction which embraces the visual complexity of contemporary life. Pinkhassov has documented backstage at numerous cultural events, from ballet performances to fashion shows.

Paris, 1997.
