Gueorgui Pinkhassov | Magnum Photos

Gueorgui Pinkhassov was born in Moscow in 1952. As a Russian who acquired French citizenship, Pinkhassov has lived in Paris for many years.
Pinkhassov became interested in photography at the end of secondary school. He studied at the VGIK Moscow Institute of Cinematography from 1969 to 1971 and then worked in the Mosfilm studios in the cameraman team before becoming a set photographer. In 1978 Pinkhassov joined the Moscow Union of Graphic Arts as an independent artist. The same year, film director Andrei Tarkovsky invited him to photograph the set of his film Stalker. In 1979 Pinkhassov participated in the collective exhibition of the Union of Graphic Arts where his photographs attracted attention.
In 1985 Pinkhassov moved to Paris. He joined Magnum Photos in 1988 and began working with the international press. However, his primary interest does not lie in covering major events. Gueorgui Pinkhassov likes to explore singular details through reflections and particular kinds of light which often approach abstraction, as can be seen in his first book, “Sightwalk”.

«During this trip I preferred not evaluating the current events, but just watching. No "goods" or "bads" interested me, the only thing I focused on was the light and its deflections on every object. This light reflected the atmosphere I felt inside of me in that very moment».
