Details

He sees what others would overlook. He creates magic out of nothing. From the most banal everyday scenes he manages to form images that exude an extraordinary spell. Russian photographer Emil Gataullin is a master of poetic black-and-white photography, a photography reminiscent of Henri Cartier-Bresson. His theme is the Russian village: a life far away from big decisions and sensations. Gataullin’s work is at the same time documentary and photographic poem, it dances on the thin line between deliberate sparseness and restraint and affectionate composition. Gataullin’s pictures neither glorify nor denigrate. They are a declaration of love for a Russia beyond Moscow. They prescribe nothing for the viewer – and are all the more mysterious for that. This magic world of Russian village life is accompanied by a poetic text by Peter-Matthias Gaede, GEO Editor-in-Chief of 20 years. Towards the Horizon won the Alfred Fried Photography Award 2014 and is volume 1 of the Visual Poetry series.

Juli 2017: A reflection on the work of Russian photographer Emil Gataullin—beginning with his childhood in a small town beyond Moscow and running through his arresting, contemplative street photography.

Black+White Photographie

April 2017: Gataullin is considered a master of poetic photography and has been likened to Henri Cartier-Bresson, not least for his impromptu snapshots of ordinary village life, captured with a quizzical and affectionate eye. Donatella Montrone

GEO

November 2016: EIN EXKLUSIVER VORABDRUCK in der Sonderausgabe 40 Jahre GEO: „Emil Gataullin ist der große Unbekannte der Fotografie: Im Stillen hat der junge Russe ein Werk von klassischer Schönheit zusammengetragen, das Kenner bereits mit jenen der großen Meister seines Faches vergleichen.”
