Gueorgui Pinkhassov is known for his vivid art-reportage, which elevates the everyday to the extraordinary. His richly-colored images are absorbing, manifold and poetic—sometimes bordering on abstraction but always embracing the visual complexity of contemporary life. Born in Moscow in 1952, Pinkhassov’s interest in photography began while he was still at school. After studying cinematography, he went on to work as a cameraman and then as an on-set photographer. From there, he joined the Moscow Union of Graphic Artists in 1978, allowing him more freedom to travel and exhibit internationally. A member of Magnum since 1988, Pinkhassov’s recent work includes his study of Blackpool Illuminations in 2018 and his coverage of the clashes between anti-government protesters and police in the Ukraine in 2014. Today, he works regularly for the international press, particularly for Geo, Actuel and The New York Times Magazine.
